Brent Suter is not a big name among baseball fans; Aaron Judge is. Their unlikely meeting on a baseball field on Saturday afternoon may have been the highlight for all fans of the sport, though. They each have their own unique styles, ones that don't always seem conducive with the ways of the Milwaukee Brewers and new york yankees, respectively. When the slugging outfielder stepped into the box on Saturday afternoon, however, great theater ensued.

Judge and Suter battle

Suter was quickly becoming a problem for the Yankees for one reason: the unorthodox speed in his pitching routine. Before batters could even get comfortable in the box, a pitch was coming straight towards them.

It was definitely befuddling Yankees hitters, who were struggling to get a hit or find any sort of rhythm against the Brewers starter. Judge was not going to let the quick pitch artist throw him off, though - it was just going to be batting practice for him.

While Yankees batters were constantly leaving the box and allowing the pitcher to get the upper hand, Judge would allow no such advantage. After every pitch, he would remain in the box, getting into his stance immediately. For the first time all afternoon, Suter was the one who looked uncomfortable and rushed in his motion.

It led to a rather entertaining affair, both for fans in the stands and broadcasters of the game. After four consecutive foul balls on a full count, Judge drew a walk in the bottom of the fourth inning, ending the at-bat.

Suter's day sullied by bullpen

Outside of the battle with Judge, Suter was rolling for most of the afternoon.

Towards the end of his outing, he began to struggle, running out of steam quickly. After recording the first out in the seventh inning, he gave up a ground-rule double and a single. A wild pitch and a triple plated the first two runs of the game for the Yankees. Just like that, Suter's day was over, with the Brewers clinging on to a 3-2 lead.

The team managed to maintain Suter's lead through the end of the frame and through the eighth inning. It would not last, though. In the bottom of the ninth inning, Corey Knebel continued his strikeout streak, but sandwiched the feat with two walks.Then, rookie Clint Frazier hit the first walk-off home run of his career, a three-run shot to left field that resulted in the 5-3 final. For once, it wasn't an Aaron Judge home run that people were discussing following the conclusion of the game.
