Yankees Captain Aaron Judge Breaks His Own Record To Script Rare MLB History

New York Yankees’ captain, Aaron Judge, continues to record his name in the books of Major League Baseball (MLB) history with remarkable achievements over the past few seasons. The world saw the slugger hitting home runs like a child play in 2022, wherein he got the record of hitting the most homers in a single season under his belt. And this year is no different.

2023 is proving to be an even better year for Aaron Judge, offensive-wise. Despite missing 10 days of game time due to a hip injury, the slugger had made up for the time lost. After 46 games, the captain has 18 home runs to his tally. The same was the case in 2022 as well before Judge eventually went on to script history. While the ultimate homer record is still far from reach, Judge has greeted the fans with another rare milestone.

The mighty New York Yankees are currently on a trip to Seattle to face the Mariner in a three-game series. The visitors fed on the winning momentum from last weekend and trashed the hosts by securing the first two games with a comfortable margin. The Yankees scored 10 runs each in both games, while the Mariners failed to put up even half of the run on board. The Yankees have witnessed a meteoric offensive resurgence in the past few weeks. And the man at the epicenter of the whole turnaround is none other than the captain himself, Aaron Judge. He scored one home run in the first game and two in the second game, which helped him breach a rare milestone.

Yankees captain Aaron Judge displayed his defensive abilities during Tuesday’s game against the Mariners. After scoring two homers on the plate, it was time for the outfielder to own the field. He robbed the Mariner’s hitter of a home run by pulling out an acrobatic catch close to the right field wall. With that, Aaron Judge became the only player in the league to have hit multiple homers and also robbed one in a single game. He broke his own record he set last year on July 29. Moreover, Aaron is also now the only player in the past 30 years of MLB to have had two such games in his whole career. Certainly, Judge arguably remains the best hitter in the league presently. Moreover, at this pace, he is set on the path to breaking his own ultimate home run record.

The New York Yankees are having the best time of the season. After enjoying the series win against Padres, the team traveled to Seattle to face the Mariners. The Yankees unleashed offensive carnage on the Mariner by recording back-to-back 10-run games. Aaron Judge continued his home run spree by adding three more to his tally in two games.

Further, to everyone’s surprise, the Yankees infielder turned utility player, Isiah Kiner-Falefa, recorded four RBIs on Tuesday, which helped the Yankees with dominating lead. On the other hand, Yankees starter Nestor Cortes had a good outing as well, as he gave away just two runs in five innings, with the bullpen closing the game without any further damage. With this, the Yankees are one game behind the Orioles and could soon clinch the second spot on the East table.
