Aaron Judge Blasts Home Run No. 60 To Tie Babe Ruth, Then Stanton Wins It With Game-Ending Grand Slam
google news

Aaron Judge sheepishly climbed up the stairs for the curtain call and ducked back into the dugout as quickly as he could. The Yankees slugger had just tied Babe Ruth with 60 home runs in the season, becoming one of just three Yankees ever to reach that plateau, one behind the American League and team record of Roger Maris’ 61. But Judge was kicking himself for not doing it earlier.

“Why didn’t I do this with the bases loaded, a little earlier in the game,” Judge was saying to himself as he rounded the bases and the Stadium in the Bronx went berserk. Four batters later, Judge lost his mind. Judge’s historic home run sparked a five-run rally in the ninth, capped by Giancarlo Stanton’s walk-off grand slam to beat the Pirates 9-8 in front of 40,157 in the Stadium.

Anthony Rizzo followed Judge’s historic homer with a double and Gleyber Torres drew a walk. Josh Donaldson had his fly ball to shallow center drop in and Stanton crushed his 27th homer of the season to win it.

On the night that Judge’s name moved into the rarified air of Ruth and Maris, he was more excited about Stanton breaking out of his slump and pulling a win out at the last minute.

“It was an all around great team game,” Judge said. “That’s what this team is made up of. We were kind of slow to start, especially against a good rookie pitcher, but guys worked hard until the very end. So I will remember those four at-bats leading up to Giancarlo’s grand slam walk off.”

Judge became just the sixth player in major league history (ninth time) to hit at least 60 home runs in a single season, tying Ruth’s 1927 mark of 60. That’s the second-most in Yankees history and one shy of the team and American League record set by Maris in 1961.

Only Maris, Barry Bonds (73 in 2001), Mark McGwire (70 in 1998 and 65 in 1999) and Sammy Sosa (64 in 2001 and 63 in 2001) have hit more home runs in a single season. Of course, Bonds, McGwire and Sosa hit their marks during the steroids era.

“It’s unreal. It’s amazing to watch and … we get to see all the internal stuff and all the behind the scenes work. He hit 60 tonight and it’s like nothing happened. He’s got more work to do,” said Stanton, who was the last major leaguer to reach the 59-home run mark. “And that’s the mindset and that’s how it will always be and this is fun to be a part of.”

Judge leads the majors with his 60 homers, the next closest is Kyle Schwarber with 40. The 60 home runs in 147 games are the most by a Yankee and the third most by any major leaguer. He’s hit three homers in his last two games and five in his last six.

That means that there might start to be a little bit of looking past Maris’ record of 61 and perhaps at the 73 hit by Barry Bonds in 2001.

“I think there’s no limit and there’s no jumping the gun,” Stanton said. “It’s one at-bat at a time, one pitch at a time. When he gets the next one, he’s gonna go on to the next one. The next step , the next at-bat, but as the distractions and everything else come to him that’s when he has to have more tunnel vision and just just be ready for what’s coming.”

Judge has handled this entire season with tunnel vision, from turning down an extension that would have paid him $230 million over the next eight years on Opening Day and betting on himself, to ignoring the historic numbers he is putting up. Going 1-for-4 Tuesday night, Judge’s batting average is at .316, the best in the American League. With his 128 RBI, he moved into position to win the first Triple Crown since Miguel Cabrera in 2012.

Still, Judge isn’t interested in numbers and curtain calls.

“I haven’t really been thinking about numbers or stats and stuff like that. I was just trying to go out there and help my team win and at the time, it was a solo shot in the ninth, still down by a couple of runs,” Judge said of not waiting to take the curtain call. “But this team we’ve always had a never-die attitude, you know, fight till the end and you got four guys right behind me with great at-bats one after the other against a great closer makes it that much sweeter that’s for sure.”

Hilaria Baldwin Gives Birth To Her 7Th Child With Alec Baldwin, 'Ilaria Catalina Irena'

Sept. 24 (UPI) — Hilaria Baldwin gave birth Thursday to Ilaria Catalina Irena Baldwin, her seventh child with Alec Baldwin and her eighth, she announced on Instagram Saturday.

” She’s there ! We are thrilled to present our little dream come true,” Hilaria Baldwin wrote in the caption of her post.

“She and I are happy and healthy. Her Baldwinito siblings spend the day bonding and welcoming her into our home. Lots of love to you all. We are very happy to celebrate this wonderful news with you.

Ilaria, weighing 6lb 13oz, is now the couple’s youngest child after Carmen, 9; Raphael, 7 years old; Leonard, 5 years old; Romeo, 4 years old; and Eduardo and Lucia — who are both under 2 years old.

The mother explained how Lucia, just six months younger than her brother Eduardo, was born via surrogate in an Instagram post in August 2021.

“Whenever I meet people and they ask me the age of my children, I wait for their awkward moment when they calculate the age difference of my last two babies. I have not yet found the transparent way to explain it,” Hilaria Baldwin said at the time.

“What I do know is that I’m so existential now, becoming a mom, what makes us family, bonds, communities… what makes us belong. The paths and nuances may be different, but meaning is what gives meaning to our existence.

Alec Baldwin, 64, shares another child, Ireland Baldwin, 26, with ex-wife Kim Basinger.

Nestlé To Invest Rs 5,000 Crore By 2025 In Capacity And Brand Building In India: Ceo Mark Schneider

mini

This was Schneider’s first visit to a global market since the Covid-19 pandemic hit as well as the first board meeting in an international market, which is an indication of the importance of India, he told Storyboard18 – CNBC-TV18, in an exclusive interview.

Nestle, the world’s largest food company, has ambitions to invest Rs 5,000 crore in India by 2025, CEO Mark Schneider said during his week-long visit to the country, which is the Nestlé’s tenth global market. The new investments will help the company accelerate its core business in the country and take advantage of new growth opportunities in established and emerging categories.

It was Schneider’s second visit to the country since joining the Swiss food and beverage group from healthcare group Fresenius in 2017, where he was chief executive. This is also its first visit to a global market since the Covid-19 pandemic hit as well as the first board meeting in an international market, which is an indication of the importance and India’s impact on Nestlé’s global agenda, Schneider shared during an exclusive high-profile interview with Storyboard18’s Delshad Irani on CNBC-TV18.

Schneider also said the investment would focus on capital expenditures, expanding and improving Nestlé India’s brand portfolio, acquisitions in emerging segments and establishing new factories.

Today, 99% of what Nestlé sells in India is made in India and the company also has a global R&D center in the country.

Nestlé owns over 2,000 brands globally and is the maker of iconic household brands such as Kit-Kat, Nescafe and Maggi, which is a staple in the Indian pantry and one of the country’s most beloved brands.
Maggi, the undisputed market leader, made a dramatic turnaround when it came back from the brink after the lead crisis in 2015. Packages were pulled from shelves and over 22,000 tons of Maggi had to be destroyed to an estimated cost of Rs 500 crore. In the years since, the company has redoubled its efforts to restore trust in the brand and has seen Maggi regain its leading position in the market. But there is increasing competition from established and new players and the challenge of constantly changing tastes and preferences.

The company has also stepped up its sustainability efforts to address the many challenges it faces today, with a focus on the new bottom line – People, Planet, Profits.

In India, initiatives under Nestlé’s “Commitment to Society” relate to the areas of nutrition awareness with the Nestlé Healthy Kids program (launched in 2009) and the Jagriti project to encourage good nutrition practices and food and encourage the use of public health services. In rural development, Nestlé leads Dairy Development (1961) and the Nescafé Plan (2012) to improve the quality and sustainability of coffee sourcing and production. Others include the Spice plan, the Vriddhi project and the Hilldaari project to promote better management of waste collection and segregation.

Nestlé has had a presence in India for over a century and Schneider shared that in the past 60 years since Nestlé started manufacturing in India, it has invested over Rs 8,000 crore in its operations here.

“In 1961 we started our first manufacturing site and so throughout that period it has been Rs 8,000 crore and now in the next three years it will be Rs 5,000 crore,” Schneider told a panel discussion with the media. The investment, subject to board approval, is intended to accelerate core business and increase capital expenditure, development work and brand building with sustainability as one of the main pivots.

Naomi Watts and Bobby Cannavale play the new owners of the Brannocks. “Can you keep us safe?” the Brannocks’ son asks his father in the disturbing new trailer featuring strange neighbors and sinister threats. Dad doesn’t look too confident.

Mia Farrow and Richard Kind also appear in the series, which premieres on Netflix on October 13, just in time for Halloween. The White Lotus’ Jennifer Coolidge plays real estate agent Karen Calhoun and has previously appeared as the character in a short teaser in which she points out the house’s perks, including the vintage freight elevator. “I tell you,” she said. “You could accommodate a person there.”

‘Resilient’ Tennessee Volunteers relish second win over Florida in 18 years

'Resilient' Tennessee Volunteers Relish Second Win Over Florida In 18 Years
google news

Knoxville, Tenn. – For only the second time in the past 18 years, Tennessee basked in a win over Florida on Saturday, this one a 38-33 thriller that went all the way.

But as fans celebrated outside the media room at Neyland Stadium, Tennessee quarterback Hendon Hooker smiled and said nothing had changed for the Vols.

“We still have the same mission, and that is to get to Atlanta [for the SEC championship game]”, said Hooker, who passed for 349 yards and rushed for 112 yards. “We’re just going to stay the course, come in every day and keep improving.

The Vols (4-0) last qualified for the SEC Championship Game in 2007, and a big reason for that drought is that they just couldn’t beat Florida.

While Hooker did his best to play down the win, a sold-out checkerboard Neyland Stadium was still buzzing about 15 minutes after Tennessee cornerback Kamal Hadden intercepted Florida quarterback Anthony Richardson’s final shot to the end zone in the final seconds. Tennessee was leading 38-21 with 7:55 remaining when Jaylen Wright crossed the goal line on a 5-yard touchdown run.

But the Vols had to survive a few late touchdowns from the Gators (2-2), not to mention a kick recovery in the final seconds to sweat the win, something that had eluded them in just about every possible way. for many of the last decade and a half.

“I’m really excited for our players, just the growth they’ve shown, the ability to compete regardless of the score, regardless of what’s going on in the football game,” Tennessee coach Josh Heupel said. . “They’re just resilient, fierce competitors, where we’ve grown since I’ve been here. I’m really proud of our players.”

Hooker, making his own claim for the Heisman Trophy, threw a touchdown pass in his 16th consecutive game. He also shook off several fierce punches to stay in the game and lead the Vols to what was by far the biggest victory of the Heupel era. Since taking over as starting quarterback in Week 3 a year ago, Hooker has totaled 45 touchdowns, completed 69% of his passes and thrown just two interceptions during that span.

“I told him after he broke a long run, ‘You’re special,’” Tennessee running back Jabari Small said. “I was impressed. I’m a fan right now, but Hendon is the same person every day. He stays in the game, always smiling and does everything off the pitch. So when you see him on the pitch, it’s is just translated. … He’s just a great player.”

And never was Hooker’s tenacity more apparent than in the second quarter, when he tugged his shoulder and stood up, grimacing. But he never flinched on the pitch.

“There are ups and downs and pain throughout a football game. It’s a physical game,” Hooker said. “To persevere through this is something I’m proud of, just to be a warrior and to compete for my brothers.”

Hooker said getting hit didn’t change the way he played the rest of the way. In fact, he led the Vols on a game-changing 12-play, 99-yard touchdown just before halftime.

“It’s part of the game,” Hooker said. “You’re gonna get hit hard. You’re gonna get punched. If you can go, you can go. If you can’t, you can’t.”

The Vols were without their top receiver, Cedric Tillman, with an ankle injury. Having an open date next week should help the Vols heal some of their wounds. They go to LSU on October 8, then Alabama arrives in Knoxville on October 15.

“There are a lot of things we can do better, but the goal for us is to find a way to win every Saturday we are on the pitch, to be the best team in football,” Heupel said. “We were able to do that tonight. Great game, man.”
