Aaron Judge may be putting together his best season yet, but it could have been just a little bit better on Tuesday night in Baltimore.
The Yankees slugger crushed two home runs in a 5-4 win over the Orioles and went 4-for-5 with three RBI, but could have very well had a third home run if not for the new dimensions at Camden Yards.
In the first inning, Judge slugged a hanging slide to deep left field but it went off the top of the wall, which was pushed back and elevated prior to the season.
Had the Orioles’ old dimensions been in play, Judge would have had himself a three-home run night.
Yet, Judge still ended the night with the league lead in home runs (14) and is now hitting .315/.384/.692 slash line on the season.
Judge turned down a $213.5 million extension from the Yankees prior to his season to bet on himself, and that certainly seems like it is paying off at this point.
