The New York Yankees and Toronto Blue Jays opened a fast – but important – two-game series Tuesday night at Yankee Stadium. AL East’s two rivals (along with the Tampa Bay Rays) battle it out for the division title all season long.

The Blue Jays took a 5-3 lead in the ninth inning, and that usually means it’s game over. Closer Jordan Romano has been outstanding this season, posting a 1.35 ERA and an MLB best-12 save in Tuesday’s game. The Blue Jays have 10 one-run wins, thanks in part to Romano closing the door in the ninth inning.

Unfortunately, Romano wasn’t at his best on Tuesday. He went against No. 9 hitter Jose Trevino and leadoff hitter DJ LeMahieu with an out and set up Aaron Judge for the walk-off home run. The towering blast is Judge’s first career walk-off homer. For the action footage:

Not many home runs land in second deck in left field at Yankee Stadium. Statcast says the ball only traveled 414 feet, but regardless of the distance, it was worth three runs and turned the 5-3 deficit into a 6-5 win (box score).

The win took the Yankees to 21-8 for the season, the best record in baseball. The Blue Jays slipped to 17-14 and have lost three games in a row.
