New York Yankees beast Aaron Judge cracks a mammoth home run late in Game 6 to provide the Bombers life against the Houston Astros.
With five outs left, Yankees young slugger Aaron Judge stepped up with nothing going on for the Yankees offense. The Yankees, down 3-0 at the time, have gone as Judge has gone so often this year, and they would again.
Judge, who hit 52 home runs during the season, cracked a hanging sinker from Astros pitcher Brad Peacock out of the yard.

It was a monster home run, going well over the high wall in left field at Minute Maid Park. It was only a solo home run, but it made it a two-run game and gave the Yankees a glimmer of hope that they can come back and prevent a game seven.
The Astros were able to get through the eighth inning without giving up another run, so it will be on the Yankees to score at least two runs in the top of the ninth, presumably against Astros closer Ken Giles.
