Judge breaks rookie homer record

Yankees Aaron Judge ties Mark McGwire with 49th HR as rookie

The #new york yankees topped the #Kansas City Royals 11-3, with Judge picking up the rookie record for home runs in a season. "The one thing I don't want is him to get away from is what he's been doing", Girardi said. "You got to go out there, '" he would say later.

Said Judge: "First curtain call, I hope it was a good one". Judge leads the American League in homers after hitting only seven - while batting.179 - from July 14 through the end of August.

That's fun for fans to watch, but it's even more gratifying for the Yankees to see their star right fielder successfully make adjustments and regain his form. Team-mate Gary Sanchez followed Judge with his 33rd homer of the season.

In the first 10 games of this road trip, the Royals had broken the Cleveland Indians' 22-game winning streak, witnessed Alex Gordon set the major-league record for homers in a season and watched Mike Moustakas surpass Steve Balboni's 32-year-old franchise record.

CC Sabathia earned the victory with six-plus solid innings.

Greg Bird added a two-run homer in the sixth, his seventh home run this season and fourth in nine games. They were Judge and Babe Ruth in 1920.

"Obviously it would be a great accomplishment".

Judge's second home run against the Royals at Yankee Stadium gave him No. 50.

Sabathia was credited with the win for the Yankees for working six innings and giving up four hits and three runs. But he's more than snapped out of his funk, especially in September, during which he's batted.307, with 13 homers, 25 runs scored and 26 RBIs. Manager Joe Girardi challenged him during spring training to reach 100.

Here's the latest Royals vs. Yankees recap with top performers, game stats, a standings update, and what's next on the schedule for these two Major League Baseball teams.
