Judge breaks McGwire's rookie home-run record

Judge breaks McGwire's rookie home-run record

Judge's two-run shot to right in the third extended the Yankees' lead to 3-0.

New York Yankees slugger Aaron Judge has broken Mark McGwire's record for home runs as a rookie after reaching 50 for the season on Monday. He connected twice in Yankee Stadium, giving him 50 home runs on the season. "The one thing I don't want is him to get away from is what he's been doing", Girardi said.

"Especially in the minor leagues, you're always wondering about who's ahead of you and what's going to happen or if you're going to get called up or what's going on with the team ahead of you", Judge told The Trentonian in a 1-on-1 interview.

McGwire recorded 49 homers for the Oakland Athletics in 1987.

Judge entered the game with 48 homers, having clubbed a pair in Sunday's loss to the Blue Jays in Toronto.

Julia Louis-Dreyfus 'Numb' After Record-Tying Emmy Win
The Veep star sang about Trump in show host's, Stephen Colbert, opening song at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles, California . She's 56", while another added: " Julia Louis-Dreyfus's insane streak would be infuriating if she didn't 1000% deserve it.

Each blast also proved historic for the 6-7 right fielder. Team-mate Gary Sanchez followed Judge with his 33rd homer of the season.

He has 13 home runs in September and six in five games. It also earned him emphatic endorsement for the American League MVP award from CC Sabathia.

A hot first half made New York Yankees outfielder Aaron Judge an instant star thanks to his 30 home runs, and he was Home Run Derby champion in Miami during All-Star week.

The 25-year-old wound up getting both home run balls back and said he will give them to his parents. In July and August (52 games), Judge hit.207/.359/.402 with 10 homers and 20 RBI. Meaning the Yanks will in all likelihood have a date with the Twins in the Wild Card Game next Tuesday, Oct. 3. He hit two home runs for the second straight day and has four multihomer games this month.

During their radio rap sessions over the years, Mike Francesa asks Yankees general manager Brian Cashman the perfunctory question about the minor leagues, if there are any budding beasts about to be spawned by their farm system.
