Aaron Judge joins elite company with 60th home run

We had planned to debut an Aaron Judge Watch section in the newsletter today, and the first edition wasn't looking promising.

Entering the ninth inning, he was 0 for 3 with a walk, and the Yankees trailed the lowly Pirates 8-4. Then came history. Then came victory.

Judge blasted his 60th home run of the season, and Giancarlo Stanton hit a walk-off grand slam in a wild 9-8 win

Judge is just the sixth player to reach 60 home runs in a season, joining Barry Bonds, Mark McGwire, Sammy Sosa, Roger Maris and Babe Ruth.

Four batters later, Stanton launched his third career walk-off grand slam, which is tied for most in MLB history

 While Judge's home run chase is the biggest storyline, Stanton's slam was huge: The Yankees' AL East lead over the Blue Jays would have shrunk to just 4.5 games with a loss.
