As Aaron Judge continues to mash home runs, a reminder that 60 is still the magical plateau

ST. LOUIS — Aaron Judge did not hit a home run this weekend in St. Louis. Yeah, that’s noteworthy. The Cardinals didn’t exactly lock up Judge; the mammoth Yankees slugger had five hits, four RBIs — including two bases-loaded hits on Sunday — a pair of runs scored and even a stolen base during the three-game series. Even when he’s not doing Capital D damage, he’s doing damage.

Montgomery beats former team as Cardinals blank Yankees 1-0

ST. LOUIS (AP) — Jordan Montgomery blanked his old teammates over five innings and Nolan Arenado drove in the lone run as the St. Louis Cardinals handed the New York Yankees their season-high fourth straight loss, 1-0 Saturday night. Making his first start for St. Louis since being acquired at the trade deadline earlier in the week, Montgomery (4-3) was taken out after five innings for precautionary reasons due to cramping. “It’s tough to throw against a team you just left. For him to do what he did was pretty special,” St. Louis manager Oliver Marmol said. “He had nine groundball outs. A really good job by Jordan.” St. Louis has won a season-high six straight games, and eight of nine. The Cardinals are 10-2 over their last 12 games at Busch Stadium, including seven straight wins.
