Aaron Judge disappointed fans by getting stuck for 60 home runs, but he hit two doubles and scored on Oswaldo Cabrera’s first-inning grand slam that started the New York Yankees in a 14-2 win over the Pittsburgh Pirates. Wednesday night.

A day after hitting home run No. 60 to spark an impressive five-run rally in the ninth inning capped by Giancarlo Stanton’s final hit of the game, Judge hit a double on the first pitch in the first and fifth innings. Given another timeout during an eight-run eighth inning, Judge was walked on four pitches by rookie Eric Stout as the sellout crowd of 46,175 booed loudly.

Judge went 2-for-4 with 14 games remaining and came within a home run of tying the American League record set by the Yankees’ Roger Maris in 1961. Judge leads the American League in batting average (.317), home runs and RBIs ( 128), in position to become the first Triple Crown winner in a decade.

Cabrera and Gleyber Torres each had five RBIs. Torres hit two home runs in the eighth inning, raising his season total to 23.

The applause began every time Judge entered the on-deck circle, and fans stood up and took photos. Maris’s children and Judge’s family were in the stands.

He started the first against rookie Roasny Contreras (5-5) with a line drive to left field and started the fifth with a jumper over the left field wall.

New York (90-58) closed in on its sixth straight postseason berth and 24th in 28 years. The Yankees began the night 5 1/2 games ahead of second-place Toronto in the American League East.

Cabrera made the Yankees the first team in major league history to end a game with a slam and hit another in the first inning of their next game, according to STATS. The only previous teams to hit slams in the last inning of one game and the first of the next were the 1955 Boston Red Sox and the 2017 Los Angeles Dodgers.

Cabrera has three home runs and 14 RBIs in 30 games since making his debut Aug. 17. With the bases loaded on Judge’s double and a pair of walks from Contreras, Cabrera drove a hanging slider into the right-field bleachers.

New York has four slams in four games against the Pirates this season, including in back-to-back innings on July 6. The Yankees’ 10 slams this season are the most since 2012.

Harrison Bader had a two-run double in the big eighth and has five RBIs in his first two games with the Yankees.

Luis Severino (6-3) returned from a right lateral muscle strain that had sidelined him since July 13 and allowed one run on two hits in five innings with six strikeouts. He reached 98.9 mph.

Contreras struck out a career-high 10, allowing six runs on six hits in 4 2/3 innings.

Ke’Bryan Hayes had a sacrifice fly and an RBI single for Pittsburgh (55-94).

SLAMMIN’

Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre won 4-3 at the Lehigh Valley on Tuesday night when Ronald Guzman hit a slam in the seventh inning.

TWO-FERS

Torres joined Joe DiMaggio, Joe Pepitone, Cliff Johnson and Alex Rodriguez (twice) as Yankees to hit two home runs in one inning.

EYE BALLS

New York’s win Tuesday averaged 539,000 on the Yankees’ YES Network, their most prime-time viewers for a game other than the Mets since 557,000 for an 11-inning game against Atlanta on Aug. 2, 2018. YES is averaging 352,000, up 23% from last year and its highest level since 2011.
