Yankees’ Aaron Judge: Smacks sixth homer Aaron Judge Jersey Sale
Judge went 2-for-4 with a home run, a walk, three RBI and two runs scored Saturday against the Blue Jays.
Judge’s home run was a two-out, two-run shot in the third inning off Marcus Stroman. The slugger is starting the year by posting numbers even better than those that earned him a second-place finish in the AL MVP race last season, hitting .338/.472/.634 through 89 plate appearances. His .419 BABIP suggests things will cool off somewhat, though his ability to absolutely crush the ball lends itself to higher-than-average BABIPs, as his career figure stands at .356.

How Yankees’ Aaron Judge just made history, passed Mark McGwire New York Yankees Jerseys For Sale
Yankees right fielder Aaron Judge made history Monday.
His solo homer in the 12-1 win over the Marlins at Yankee Stadium gave him 60 for his career. He reached the mark in 197 games — or five less than Mark McGwire, who previously was the fastest to 60 bombs.
Afterward, Judge gave a typical Judge answer. Basically, he wasn’t impressed.
“Happy to add another run to the board and help our team win,” Judge said.
The blast gave Judge four on the season. He went 2-for-4 on the night to up his batting average to .351 with a 1.093 OPS.
Manager Aaron Boone said Judge “kind of sets the tone” before explaining what’s made him so impressive in his most recent run.
“I talk to you guys all the time — at-bat quality,” Boone said. “His at-bat quality has been through the roof every time. Whether he makes an out. Whether he gets on base. Whether he goes deep. Whatever it is. The pitcher has got to work really hard and make all his best pitches if you’re going to retire him. It seems like time and time again he just grinds you down and he’s in a really good place up there. at the plate right now.”
