The Red Sox cowardly walked Aaron Judge on 4 straight balls and Yankee Stadium let them hear it

The Boston Red Sox are effectively out of the playoff race. They have nothing to play for, but by watching Michael Wacha’s first-inning approach to Aaron Judge, the Red Sox seemed determined to avoid their place in a historical highlight reel.

Judge, as most know, went into Thursday night’s game tied with Babe Ruth at 60 home runs on the season. He’s one home run away from Roger Maris’ American League record of 61. And Yankee Stadium was absolutely juiced to watch that historical pursuit unfold on Thursday.

That was until Wacha and the Red Sox walked Judge on four straight balls in the opening at-bat — with no pitch even coming close to sniffing the zone.

Cowards!

With each ball in the at-bat, the Yankee Stadium crowd booed even louder. And they were right to do so.

Like, I get that no pitcher wants to see a home run they gave up looped throughout baseball history. But at the same time, you need to be competitive as a professional athlete. Wacha’s job is to get hitters out (or at least try to), so him starting a game with a four-pitch walk was telling. He wasn’t missing his spots — he was deliberately avoiding a chance to compete against Judge out of fear and pettiness.

On top of that, Wacha has been dominant in past matchups with Judge.

It doesn’t get much lamer than that. Just ask other baseball fans.

This was how Twitter reacted

This can’t continue all weekend. Someone needs to pitch to him.
