New York Yankees slugger Aaron Judge (31) homered in three straight at-bats.
After hitting his 33rd three-run shot of the season in the bottom of the third inning, Judge hit his 34th in the fifth and his 35th in the seventh. He now has 35 homers in 100 games this year.
It was the first time in 86 years that a player who missed 50 or more games due to injury hit 35 or more home runs in a season since Rudy York (Detroit Tigers-35) in 1937.메이저사이트
With 35 homers, Judge moved into a tie for third place in the American League in home runs. He closed the gap on the league’s home run leader, Shohei Ohtani (44), who was lost for the season due to injury.
Judge, who set an American League record with 62 home runs last year, will attempt to reach the 40-homer mark for the second straight year.
He raised his season batting average to .267 and drove in 70 runs and scored 74 times. His on-base percentage was .401.
The Yankees went on to win 7-1 behind Judge’s breakout performance. With their second straight win, the Yankees (78-76) are in fourth place in the American League East.
