Atlanta Braves third baseman Johan Camargo knew that he couldn't let New York Yankees superstar Aaron Judge upstage him in the Bronx tonight. So, one and a half innings after Judge went yard against Braves pitcher Anibal Sanchez, Camargo decided to crush a home run of his own.

Camargo turned on a 0-2 pitch thrown by Yankees rookie Jonathan Loaisiga in the top of the third inning. Camargo went golfing for the ball, as the 82.7 mph slider dropped down well below his knees as it progressed on its way to the plate. The ball ultimately went sailing into the stands in right field.


Camargo isn't exactly known for his power, but the 24-year-old versatile third baseman now has eight home runs in 190 at-bats on the season. Not shabby numbers, especially when viewed in context with his high .357 OBP and ability to man both shortstop and second base in addition to the hot corner. 

Given the back-and-forth of the first few innings of the Yankees-Braves matchup, the matchup between the two division leaders has all the makings of a rowdy game.
