New York Yankees star Aaron Judge was forced to leave Tuesday's 4-2 win over the Baltimore Orioles after he was hit on the hand by a pitch from Albert Suárez in the bottom of the third inning.

Judge confirmed following the game that X-rays and CT scans both came back negative, according to The Athletic's Brendan Kuty.

The five-time All-Star said postgame that he "was definitely pissed" by the location of several pitches from the Orioles staff during the victory over the divisional rivals.

The 32-year-old initially stayed in the game after a short visit to the clubhouse before taking his place in center field to begin the fourth inning. Trent Grisham replaced Judge when his turn in the order came up in the bottom of the fourth.

Judge has been on a tear for the AL-best Yankees. He leads MLB in home runs (26), RBIs (64), and OPS (1.115) in 74 games this season.
