Aaron Judge No. 60 Headed by Giancarlo Stanton at Grand Slam New York Yankees Pittsburgh Pirates

New York (AFP) – Aaron Judge He sent a sinker flying to the left field bleachers, another of his undoubted engines, and circled the bases for the sixtieth time.

Humble throughout a walk into history that now puts him on par with Babe Ruth, the judge took a much more rare moment than one of his long balls – a curtain call.

“I didn’t really want to do that, especially since we’re losing, it’s a one-shot,” he said, recalling how his team in the ninth inning reduced the Yankees’ deficit to three runs.

After 11 minutes, Judge and the Yankees felt free to set themselves free.

Giancarlo Stanton Judge’s Grand Slam campaign came at the end of the game, completing a stunning five-stroke, ninth New York Rally to beat the Pittsburgh Pirates 9-8 on Tuesday night.

“I kind of lost my mind,” said Judge, a family member shy about matching Roger Maris’ MLS season record. “This is a signature Giancarlo Stanton 10 feet (high) laser to pitch. I had a good front row seat for that. I think the whole team lost their minds and the pitch erupted.”

The judge hovered on the field 3-1 Will Crowe (5-10) to match Ruth’s total from 1927, which served as the league’s top record until Maris broke it 34 years later.

The judge made it to 60 in game 147—there was no discussion of season length, such as what surrounded Maris’ pursuit to the point of his hair falling out. Judge is on his way to the AL’s first triple crown in a decade, topping home runs, RBIs (128) and hitting average (.316).

No one else in the majors has more than 40 houses.

“To be so far ahead in this field,” Yankees manager Aaron Boone, amazed, “is hard for me to control.”

The judge dropped his bat near the board—it never flipped—and when he finished his jog after his 430-foot drive, he replaced the bat Anthony Rizzohug with Jaleber Torres and slap her with her Josh Donaldson. The judge walked up and down the bunker to receive congratulations and then came out of the bunker steps and briefly threw his helmet at the fans.

“I’m kidding with me Matt Carpenter “Earlier in the year, I think he had a couple of his mates at a game or something and he got a curtain call,” the judge said. So I think it takes 60 to get another one.”

Rizzo doubled, Torres walked and Donaldson saved loading the bases. Sinked in a 9-for-72 stasis, Stanton sent a half-dozen row change into the left field seats, capping a 19-degree sequence that would be a long restart and set off a raucous celebration among the remaining 40,157 crowd. Command counted, a slam at the end of the game The third scored by Stanton, by the MLB at 118 mph.

“I think they needed to recalculate 118,” Boone said. “It felt like 130.”

Roger Maris Jr. and Kevin Maris, the sons of the former player, were on hand. Stanton noted the judge’s underappreciated style.

“He hit 60 tonight, and nothing has happened. He has more work to do,” said Stanton, who hit 59 for Miami five years ago.

Crowe’s great uncle, Hall of Famer Red Ruffing, was Ruth’s Yankees teammate in the 1930s. Crowe visited the Ruffing board at Yankee Stadium Memorial Park before the game.

“He did what he was supposed to do with her,” Crowe said of the judge, “3-1 count, I’m not going to put him down. I felt like I wanted to follow him. He started away, came back in. Made a good swing on bad ground.”

Aroldis Chapman (3-3) made 1-2-3 in the ninth as the Yankees maintained a 5-1/2 – AL East lead over Toronto.

Brian Reynolds He had tied 4-4 with Homer solo in the seventh inning from Lou Trevino, then hit the green light from Jonathan Loaziga in the eighth for his fourth goal.

Rodolfo Castro – the player who was suspended for a game by Major League Baseball last month after a smartphone slipped out of his pocket during his first head slip – was followed by a three-game attack against Clay Holmes.

Harrison Bader He earned a pair of greenlights and led in three runs on his debut for the Yankees.

Once the judge reaches 61st, the only player with more in a season will be Barry Bonds (73), Mark McGuire (70, 65) and Sami Sosa (66, 64, 63), all achievements from 1998-2001 tainted by the era steroids.

The judge’s achievements are impeccable.

“I think it puts it a little higher,” Boone said. “I think he’s up there with some of the best, very short list of all seasons ever.”


Donaldson hit a slam finisher that beat Tampa Bay 8-7 in 10 runs on August 17. The Yankees joined the Pittsburgh Pirates in 1956 (Danny Kravitz and Roberto Clemente) as the only two teams to win many championships fast when they were behind. Three runs. Clemente was inside the park.


Pittsburgh made two mistakes and led the Grand Slams with a score of 108.
