The Yankees appeared to take control in the fifth when Aaron Judge gave them a 4-2 lead with a solo homer that was his MLB-best 30th home run of the season. But there were no more Brewers mistakes as reliever Josh Hader retired the next three batters.
That’s when Aguilar really got going. He hit a sacrifice fly to score a run during a two-run sixth inning. His grand slam in the seventh was part of a five-spot that broke the game open.
Aguilar finished the game 3 of 4 and his seven RBIs tied a franchise record originally set by Ted Kubiak in 1970, and tied by Jose Hernandez in 2001 and Richie Sexson in 2002.
The last time the Brewers committed five errors in a game was last July 27, in an 8-1 loss to the Diamondbacks. But thanks to Aguilar’s big bat, the National League Central-leading Brewers took the first game of a three-game series at Yankee Stadium before the All-Star break.

The Grizzlies traded for the No. 35 pick from Orlando in return for the Nets’ 2019 second-round pick, which Memphis owned.
The Sixers weren’t content with trading up to land the No. 1 pick in the draft, Markelle Fultz. On draft night, they obtained the Magic’s No. 25 pick (Anzejs Pasecniks) for their 2020 first-round pick (via Oklahoma City) and 2020 second-round pick.

Judge’s latest home run moved him passed Joe DiMaggio for most home runs by a Yankees rookie. He also became just the second rookie to hit 30-plus home runs by the All-Star break, joining Mark McGwire in 1987.
But for now, the what takes precedence over the why. What will teams do with Darnold committing to an extra year of college? Better yet, what have teams already done?
In other words, who is everybody tanking for now? And is it too late to un-tank now?
