TAMPA-- Yankees rookie Aaron Judge has tremendous power, and it was on display Friday at Steinbrenner Field.

In the fifth inning of the Yankees' 9-4 win over the Philadelphia Phillies, Judge blasted a tremendous homer to left-center that banged off the scoreboard.

"I felt like I squared it up, so I just started running and kept running," Judge said with a smile. "

What was said in the dugout afterward?

"Most high-fives," the 6-foot-7, 275-pound giant answered.

Hitting ninth in the Yankees' spring debut, Judge batted twice before Yankees manager Joe Girardi replaced all of his starters after five innings.

Judge struck out on a slider leading off the third against Phillies righty Nick Pivetta, then made up for it in the fifth batting against righty Elniery Garcia, whose 93-mph fastball was crushed.
