Yankees Thump A's In Wild-Card

Aaron Judge got the party started with a two-run homer in the first inning and the Yankees beat Oakland  7-2 Wednesday night in the AL wild-card game.

Judge's drive off Liam Hendriks got New York going, and the Yankees cruised into the AL Division Series.

They'll face the rival Boston Red Sox in the post-season for the first time since the 2004 AL Championship Series.  Game 1 is Friday at Fenway Park.

Luke Voit added a two-run triple in the sixth off closer Blake Treinen and Giancarlo Stanton added a towering drive in the eighth.

The A's have dropped all four of their post-season matchups against the Yankees.
