Aaron Judge cranked his second home run in as many games for the New York Yankees in the third inning of Sunday’s contest with the Tampa Bay Rays.
I guess you can say Aaron Judge has played his final game in the minor leagues for the New York Yankees.
Judge, who is playing in just his second major league baseball game, lined an offering from Jake Ordorizzi that just kept carrying until it landed in the first row over the auxiliary scoreboard in right.
In yesterday’s 8-4 win, he hit his first home run in his very first at-bat an did so again in his first at-bat in his second ballgame in the Bronx.
The 24-year old has become just the second player in Yankees’ history to go yard in each of his first two games. The first was Joe Lefebvre who accomplished the feat in 1980.
What’s the early verdict from the Judge? He is here to stay. And he is here to mash.
