This was one of the head-scratching moments of the Men in Blue/Yankees/Red Sox series last year. On Monday, April 10, the two teams with their respective rotating rosters played an early afternoon game at the Stadium. Both teams had Sunday-early-morning scheduled game days. Thus, neither team bothered to field its full pitching staff and enter with a finalized lineups. Instead, the first plate appearance of the game produced a plastered slugger in the form of the Red Sox’s Giancarlo Stanton. Stanton struck out, but the bases were loaded. Then, in a week of wacky events, the Yankees’ Aaron Judge dug in, with the bases still full, and hit a walk-off, walk-off homer.

It was then that Cubs starting pitcher Cole Hamels plunked Judge with a pitch that drove the Yanks’ phenom to the hospital with concussion-like symptoms. The next-day, ex-Cub Hamels went belly-up.
