Not long ago, Aaron Judge was mired in a brutal slump, but the New York Yankees slugger is starting to heat up at the right time.

All rise, here comes the Judge—Aaron Judge, that is. The New York Yankees right fielder made his presence known in the fourth inning of Saturday’s game.

Los Angeles Dodgers starter Tony Gonsolin had retired the first 10 batters he faced, but he was no match for Judge the second time through the lineup.

So much has been made about Judge’s bat lately. During a 10-game stretch in mid-August, the right fielder was 4-for-37 with no home runs and just three RBIs.

However, since that point, Judge has turned it on. Including his first two at-bats on Saturday, Judge has hits in 11 of his last 29 at-bats. Those 11 hits include three home runs and three doubles.

The Yankees are a different lineup when Judge is at the top of his game. He’s one of the most feared hitters in all of baseball when he’s locked in.
