Yordan Álvarez went 2-for-5 with a three-run homer on Thursday in the Astros' loss to the Yankees. Álvarez crushed a three-run shot to right field -- his 22nd round-tripper of the season -- in the third inning off Yankees' starter Jameson Taillon. He also tattooed a 114.7-mph single to center field in the fifth inning to notch his 24th multi-hit performance in 62 games this year. The 24-year-old slugger has gone deep five times over his last five games. He's raised his offensive game to new heights this season, slashing an astronomical .317/.406/.665 with 46 runs scored, 22 home runs and 54 RBI across 261 plate appearances. If he keeps hitting like this, he'll contend for the American League's MVP Award this season.

Aaron Judge delivered a game-winning RBI single in the ninth inning on Thursday, lifting the Yankees to a dramatic 7-6 walk-off victory over the Astros. It's still only late June, but this contest felt like a playoff game. Judge stepped to the plate with a chance to deliver the game-winning hit and came through, capping the Yankees' remarkable comeback with a walk-off single to left field against Astros' righty Ryne Stank. The 30-year-old impending free agent is the current front-runner for the American League MVP Award this season, hitting .304/.379/.658 with 58 runs scored, a major league-leading 27 home runs, 53 RBI and five stolen bases across 299 plate appearances. Unreal.
