The New York Yankees picked themselves right up off the mat on Sunday afternoon, one day following the Houston Astros no-hitting them.
In fact, Houston was just eight outs away from doing it again, but the Bronx Bombers rallied and ultimately won the game in the tenth inning on Aaron Judge‘s walk-off home run.
New York won by a final of 6-3.
MLB Network tweeted a video of Judge’s walk-off three-run shot from a different angle, all the way out in center field.
In the video, you can hear the crowd at Yankee Stadium erupt as Judge put the finishing touches on yet another come-from-behind victory.

Judge Goes Yard
That’s one way to bring the house down.
Judge’s home run sent a packed house at Yankee Stadium into a frenzy and made it so the fans could go home happy, having avoided being no-hit on back-to-back days.
But the crowd absolutely erupted when Judge hit that ball.
That one was a no-doubter and the fans at Yankee Stadium knew it right off the bat.
The Yankees avoided being on the wrong side of history two days in a row and instead treated their fans to some late-game heroics.
But to see the crowd erupt in unison on that home run just shows how electric Yankee Stadium can be, especially when the Yankees pull off a win like that, when they’re eight outs away from being no-hit twice in as many days and pull themselves out of the gutter to complete another improbable comeback.
The team didn’t quit, and the crowd was ultimately rewarded for staying with them the whole game.
Just one moment in a game can make the crowd go crazy, and that was one of them.
