Asked about his 100.5 mph throw from RF to home, Aaron Judge quipped, "About time. I've been trying to hit 100. I'm glad I broke that." He broke into a smile before being asked if Aroldis Chapman's job was now in trouble. "Oh no. He's still got that."

Yanks' Torres homers again, makes AL history

Yankees rookie Gleyber Torres homered to right in the seventh, providing the winning run over the Angels and giving Torres a place in American League history. He's the youngest AL player ever to homer in four consecutive games.

Aaron Boone on the makeup of Gleyber Torres: "He says, ‘I've been preparing for this my whole life,' and certainly the last several years coming up in the minor leagues. He just plays the game with a lot of confidence, but his intelligence is very evident. And when you combine intelligence and instincts and talent, you're looking at what's been a very special player for us."

Gleyber Torres continues to play at a torrid pace. The Yankees' 21-year-old rookie had the key swing in Friday night's 2-1 win over the Angels, smacking a 375-foot, opposite-field home run in the seventh inning. The late score put the Yankees back in the win column after they dropped their previous two games in this week's series loss at Texas. New York has now won 15 of its past 18 in the Bronx.

Lastly, Knicks GM Scott Perry said earlier this month that "it would only make sense (to take a point guard) if you feel that guard is far and away better than what you have on the roster. And we haven't been able to make that determination yet." Privately, some members of the front office have been saying the same thing regarding the idea of taking a point guard, essentially saying that it wouldn't make sense to select a PG given the current roster, which seems to be a sign of the organization's confidence in 2017 first-round pick Frank Ntilikina. Again, it's worth noting that this opinion may not be uniform throughout the Knicks' front office.

There are some in the NYK front office who love Missouri forward Michael Porter Jr. and Duke big man Wendell Carter Jr. There's no way to know if that opinion is uniform throughout the front office. But even if it is, it's unlikely that either player will be available when the Knicks pick. Though Porter Jr. may fall due to uncertainty over the back injury/surgery that kept him from playing most the past season. Also, some in the organization have Mikail Bridges ranked ahead of Miles Bridges at the moment. Both players could be available at No. 9 and, again, neither has worked out individually for the Knicks yet. So those evaluations can change, and are not necessarily uniform throughout the entire front office.

Ian Begley ESPN Staff Writer 

The Knicks haven't worked out any of the top prospects in the draft yet. So it's too early to start talking about who they may or may not draft with the No. 9 pick on June 21. Plenty can – and will – change about how they view a prospect based on that player's individual workout. With that being said, opposing executives and others around the league have heard a few consistent themes in conversations with members of the Knicks' front office lately.

A little late on this but kudos to Michael Beasley for supporting the ACES brand by wearing these shoes in a game. Brian Kortovich started the company to honor his late father, Joseph Kortovich, who died from appendix cancer when Brian was 10. ACES gives a percentage of each sale to causes that matter. "It was an honor to rock the Nike KD "ACES" custom shoes in game," Beasley said. "Knowing what Brian and the ACES brand stands for, I've always taken pride in overcoming the odds and embodying that Hustle & Heart mentality. Look forward to the next one!"

As the Yankees prepare to activate Greg Bird (ankle surgery) off the disabled list tomorrow, Aaron Boone says the team is "still working through" what the corresponding move will be. Calls it a "difficult decision." Asked about Tyler Austin, Boone credits him for being a key part of the reason the Yankees have had success this season. Austin is one player who could be an option to go to the minors as Bird comes back. As for Bird post-injury, the first baseman is "as ready as he can be," Boone said.
