Aaron Judge Breaks Mark McGwire's Rookie Home Run Mark

Aaron Judge Breaks Mark McGwire's Rookie Home Run Mark

For New York Aaron Judge hit 2 home runs giving him 50 for the season, setting a new major league record for home runs by a rookie.

Embarrassed by the attention, he managed four short waves with his right hand before heading back to the bench just three seconds later. The team has already qualified for a playoff spot, which at this point would be a Wild Card spot.

Judge blasted his 49th home run to tie Mark McGwire's record and then hit another one later in the game to set the record at 50. Judge has four multihomer games this month and seven this season.

It was his fourth multi-homer game in the last 14 contests and seventh of the season.

Judge has heated up lately after enduring a mostly hard second half.

Anthony Weiner sentenced to 21 months in prison in sexting case
Attorney Amanda Kramer on Monday urged Cote to give Weiner a significant prison sentence to end his "tragic cycle" of sexting. Over the next few hours Weiner exchanged messages with her that ranged "from the mundane to the provocative".

The Yankees have six games remaining this season for Judge to take sole possession of the rookie home run record. It worked at the moment, but Judge would continue to struggle until the calendar flipped and September came.

Judge has the AL Rookie of the Year Award all but sewn up, and he'll likely get his share of MVP votes as well.

7 - Judge's seven multi-homer games this year leads the AL, second in Major League Baseball to Giancarlo Stanton's nine with Miami.

But I must ask you: Is this good?

And what an experience it's been for him in the big leagues so far. Every time he steps to the plate you can't help but feel he's going to hit another one out. "It's baseball. Keep doing your thing, '" he remembered, speaking after the game in a pinstriped thumbs-down T-shirt.

Iran defies United States , tests missile
Video of the test firing of a Khoramshahr medium-range ballistic missile aired Friday on Iran's state TV. It was not clear, however, when and where the test launch of the Khorramshahr missile was conducted.

Even still, Judge has been special, leading the world north of Miami in round-trippers.

Now Judge is a homer away from the 50-home run milestone, which Girardi said "would be a great accomplishment" for the slugger. It's nearly like he's a big brother. "I don't want him to try to hit homers".

It's do or die time for the Kansas City Royals.

Jake Junis was knocked around for six runs over 5 2/3 innings in a loss to the Yankees on Monday.

Kansas City, starting perhaps its final week with potential free agents Eric Hosmer, Alcides Escobar, Lorenzo Cain and Moustakas, was pushed to the brink of postseason elimination. Perhaps. As we know, what players get versus what they earn are often divergent. They were Judge and Babe Ruth in 1920. He joked about Sanchez following his record-setter with a long ball.

The dig was aimed at controversies surrounding Robert Vadra, the son-in-law of Congress chief Sonia Gandhi. "There are four crore families which do not have electricity , not to talk of bulb".

Understandably, he was summoned for a curtain call as well.
