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

McGwire set the record in 1987 as a member of the Oakland Athletics with 49 home runs. In a season of alleged rebuild, Judge jammed the accelerator and shifted to reload gear.

Even still, Judge has been special, leading the world north of Miami in round-trippers. Sanchez followed Judge in the seventh with back-to-back homers for the third time this year, raising his total to 33.

The 25-year-old Judge drove Cahill's 2-1 breaking ball into the left field seats and became the fifth Yankee with at least 50 homers in a season. Judge would continue his hot start with an MVP first half hitting.329 with 30 home runs. "Built like a super-sized version of Giancarlo Stanton, the 6' 7", 282-pound behemoth owns the longest (495 feet) and hardest-hit (121.1 mph) home runs of 2017 according to Statcast.

"Just the way they run that whole team there, from the GM down, it was a fun atmosphere", said Judge of his stay in Trenton. None have hit 50 homers as a rookie.
