ALL RISE: OF Aaron Judge recorded his Major League-leading 10th multi-HR game of the season on Tuesday at Boston, hitting a game-tying solo HR in the sixth inning and a game-tying solo HR in the eighth inning…his 10 multi-HR games are the most by a Yankee in a single season in franchise history (previous: eight by Gleyber Torres in 2019, Alex Rodriguez in 2007, Mickey Mantle in 1961 and Babe Ruth in 1927)…are tied for the third-most by any Major League player in a single season, trailing only Sammy Sosa (11 in 1998 with CHC) and Hank Greenberg (11 in 1938 with DET)…is just the 10th Major League player (11th time) to record as many games in a single season…is just the third player to do so in the last 20 seasons (since 2003), joining Giancarlo Stanton (10 in 2017 with MIA) and Albert Pujols (10 in 2009 with STL).
His 26 career multi-HR games are the sixth-most by a Yankee in franchise history, trailing only Babe Ruth (68), Mickey Mantle (46), Lou Gehrig (43), Joe DiMaggio (35) and Alex Rodriguez (29).
His 26 career multi-HR games are the second-most in Major League history through 710 career games, trailing only Ralph Kiner (27).
Is the first Yankee and just the fourth Major League player (fifth time) to hit at least 57 home runs through his club’s first 142 games of a season…joins Barry Bonds (60HR in 2001 with SFG), Mark McGwire (60HR in 1998 with STL) and Sammy Sosa (59HR in 1999 and 58HR in 1998 with CHC)…through 143 team games, Barry Bonds had 60HR in 2001, Mark McGwire had 60HR in 1998 and Sammy Sosa had 59HR in 1999 and 58HR in 1998.
His 57HR are the fourth-most by a Yankee in a single season in franchise history, trailing only Roger Maris’ 61HR in 1961 and Babe Ruth’s 60HR in 1927 and 59HR in 1921.
Is just the 12th Major League player (17th time) to hit at least 57HR in a single season…is just the third player in the Majors in the last 20 seasons (since 2003) to hit as many home runs in a single season, joining Giancarlo Stanton (59HR in 2017 with Miami) and Ryan Howard (58HR in 2006 with Philadelphia).
His 123RBI this season are a career high (previous: 114RBI in 2017)…are the most by a Yankee in a single season since Alex Rodriguez recorded 125RBI in 2010.
Owns a season-high-tying 14-game on-base streak…has reached base multiple times in 12 of those 14 games, batting .479/.587/1.042 (23-for-48) with 15R, 3 doubles, 8HR, 14RBI, 14BB/7IBB, 1SF and 2SB in that span.
