Judge all about October: ‘I want it in my hands’

Yankees right fielder Aaron Judge has adjusted to the postseason spotlight and is learning how much fun the experience can be when everything is going well.

That is what’s happening for the Yankees right now in the American League Division Series. Their offense scored 18 runs in the first two games, and Judge contributed with three doubles in six at-bats, along with four walks.

“We are firing on all cylinders, and everybody is clicking and everybody is swinging the bat well,” Judge said after the Yankees’ workout Sunday at Target Field. “That’s when hitting becomes fun. You can lock in on one pitch, and if they make a mistake, you hammer it.

“When everybody is firing on all cylinders, there are no holes in this offense. That’s what we have been doing in the first two games, and we have to keep it rolling.”
