NEW YORK (AP) — A sellout crowd of 46,175 groaned as Aaron Judge left the batter’s box in the first and fifth innings.

PITTSBURGH (AP) — If the goal of swinging a bat is to hit the ball hard, then Oneil Cruz did it better than anyone.

The Marlins have had an MVP in Giancarlo Stanton, but never in the franchise's three-decade history have they had a Cy Young winner.
