The bats of the New York Yankees came alive on Tuesday night as they had 16 hits and clubbed five Home Runs in an 11-5 win over the struggling Toronto Blue Jays. Rookie sensation Aaron Judge blasted two more home runs to give him 12 on the year.

Fenway ovation for Jones

The story that took over the baseball world early Tuesday was how Baltimore Orioles outfielder Adam Jones was heckled with racial slurs by a few fans at Fenway Park on Monday night.

When Jones came to the plate for his first bat on Tuesday, the Boston fans stood and cheered, and Jones tipped his helmet.

As for the game, the Red Sox finally gave Chris Sale a few runs of support, and he was able to notch his first win since April 15.
