Aaron Judge enters Triple Crown conversation

Fenway Park is one of the US’ most historic ballparks, and it witnessed even more history on Tuesday as Aaron Judge

Aaron Judge hit his 56th and 57th homers of the 2022 season, guiding the New York Yankees to a 7-6 win against their bitter rivals, the Boston Red Sox.

Judge’s first homer of Tuesday night – a 383-foot drive through right-center field – tied the game at three in the third inning.

His next one was even bigger, as he blasted a high ball 389 feet through to deep left field and into the stands to tie the game at 4-4 in the sixth.

You really just don’t look at it. If you’re checking the numbers, you’re gonna get caught,” Judge said afterwards, according to ESPN.

“I just keep trying to do what I can do, and the numbers will take care of themselves. If I have a good plan and have a good approach, do what I need to do in the box, all that other stuff will show up.”

He is one homer short of tying the AL record for right-handed hitters, currently held by Hank Greenberg (1938) and Jimmie Foxx (1932)

the first time such a gap has existed since the final day of the 1928 season; and achieved his 10th multi-homer game of the season on Tuesday

If Judge is able to finish the season with 65 homers – which would require one every 2.5 games – it would be the fifth 65-plus home run season in MLB history.

The most ever in a single season was by Barry Bonds in 2001 when he finished with 73.
