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.
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.
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.
