NY Yankees home-run hitting superstar Aaron Judge has been burning for a lot of this MLB season. And despite a slump through August where he went had a streak of nine games with out a dinger, he seems to have found his rhythm again.
Judge has homered in three of the final four games, but were here to spotlight the incredible 427-foot moonshot Friday night in the Yankees 3-2 make an impression on the Oakland As.
A scoreless game in the very best of the fifth, Judge got NY on the board first along with his three-run homer from As pitcher JP Sears, who, by his reaction, immediately knew that ball was over.

Undoubtedly MLBs home run leader this year, that has been No. 49 to increase his lead over Phillies slugger Kyle Schwarber with 35 up to now. More on Judge via MLB.com:
Judges 49 home runs will be the second most by any AL/NL player ahead of September dating back to to the 2002 season. He trails only fellow Yankees slugger Giancarlo Stanton, who had 51 by the end of August 2017, when he was with the Marlins. Hes currently on pace going to an AL record 63 homers this year.
Just an unbelievable home-run hitting season for the Yankees slugger, whose three-run dinger Friday contrary to the As gave his team a 3-0 lead, and Oakland just couldnt catch up with time.
