Judge Takes Derby Crown Plus Wimbledon Update

 

New York Yankee’s slugger, standing at 6′-7″, 280 lbs, Aaron Judge easily wins the 2017 Home-Run Derby. The rookie defeated Justin Bour of the Marlins, 23-22, in a legendary opening round. Judge then made light work of Dodger rookie, Cody Bellinger, before taking down Miguel Sano in the championship round. Judge officially hit 47 home runs on the night, including four over 500 feet with a long of 513′.
Tonight the American League takes on the National League in the 88th Major League Baseball All-Star Game.  Boston Red Sox ace, Chris Sale, gets the start for the AL and becomes the first pitcher to make consecutive All-Star game starts for different teams, while Max Scherzer gets the nod for the NL and becomes the fifth pitcher to start in the mid-summer class in both leagues. Rangers’ starting pitcher and lone All-Star, Yu Darvish, will not pitch tonight after starting against the Angels on Sunday. First pitch tonight is 6:30 pm.
At Wimbledon, 16th ranked Gilles Muller upsets No. 4 Rafael Nadal in five sets. Muller faces No. 7 Marin Cilic in the quarterfinal round. The world’s top player, Andy Murray, beats Benoit Paire, while Roger Federer defeats Grigor Dimitrov.
The women’s side saw their own upset, as 14th ranked Garbine Muguruza takes down No. 1 Angelique Kerber.
And the Tour De France picks back up today with the 10th stage. Riders will venture through Perigueux and Bergerac as the pack looks to catch the front man, Chris Floome.
