Aaron Judge Hits 2 More Homers to Break Mark McGwire's Rookie Record

Yankees Aaron Judge ties Mark McGwire with 49th HR as rookie

The #new york yankees topped the #Kansas City Royals 11-3, with Judge picking up the rookie record for home runs in a season.

Not much for celebrating his own personal achievements, Judge acknowledged the fans clamoring for a curtain call by stepping out of the home dugout and waving to the standing and cheering crowd. "As we got to spring training, what I said is if he gets the barrel to the ball he's going to do a lot of damage, and if he does it on a consistent basis he's going to have a huge year for us". If not, after completely manhandling the Minnesota Twins pitching staff last week, there's no reason to think Aaron Judge & Co. can't hit themselves into the divisional round if they face the Twins in the one-game Wild Card.

He's also only the fifth player in team history to hit 50 home runs in a season.

Despite a slump after the All-Star break, Judge appears to have once again found his swing, having hit four homers in his past two days to break McGwire's record and keeping his name in the conversation for AL MVP.

Junis, who had won eight of his first 10 decisions, was rocked for six runs in 5.2 innings for the Royals.

Cerv, who played college baseball at Nebraska, hit 38 homers for the Athletics in 1958. "What he's done, 50 home runs, carrying this team to the playoffs, we can honestly say we're in this spot because of him".

In 2016, Judge made his Major League Baseball debut, hitting a home run in his first plate appearance, but he struck out in 42 of his 84-at-bats, hitting.179. Didi Gregorius had an RBI groundout in the first and scored on Matt Holliday's double in the sixth.

After Monday's game, the Yankees still have six remaining.

CC Sabathia had a six-run lead and a shutout going until the seventh, when he gave up three runs - coming on consecutive home runs by Salvador Perez and Mike Moustakas - to make it 6-3.
