I’ve already said that I won’t be missing the O'Neil Cruz train and the train is most definitely making a stop in the best hitter’s park in the country. Cruz can absolutely crush the ball and in a stadium where the balls carry about 9% further due to the altitude, he only looks better. Jose Urena, the Rockies starter, has had limited experience this year but has given up two bombs over 20 innings so far.
I don’t need to explain how great of a hitter Aaron Judge is, he’s currently second in the AL MVP odds at only +165 and leads the league with 31 home runs. What sells this one is the extra juice of Boston in town. Judge shows up in the big games and this is definitely one of them. Nick Pivetta is very hittable and doesn’t have a great history against Judge. In 6 at bats, he’s walked Judge 3 times and given up 1 hit. Judge will be waiting for his first chance tonight.
O'Neil Cruz / Aaron Judge @ +1450
