Aaron Judge (New York Yankees), who set a new American League home run record and won the MVP award last year, has been quiet since returning from injury, but recently shows an amazing home run pace.
Judge played an active part in an away game against the Toronto Blue Jays in the 2023 Major League Baseball (MLB) held at the Rogers Center in Toronto, Ontario, Canada on the 16th (Korean time), with 2 hits (2 homers), 3 walks, 3 RBIs and 2 runs, contributing to the team’s led to a 7-4 victory.
In his first at-bat in the top of the first inning, Judge hit Alec Manoa’s high fastball and hit a dominant home run to score the first run.
Afterwards, Judge, who walked on base in all three at-bats, hit a large batting ball at the last opportunity to hit from 2 out in the top of the 8th inning when the team was leading 6-0.메이저사이트
After a full count, Judge hit Jay Jackson’s 83.7 mile (about 134.7 km) slider and crossed the middle fence. The ball flew 462 feet (about 140.8 m) at a speed of 114.9 miles (about 184.9 km).
Judge, who hit the 9th and 10th home runs of the season that day, tied for 8th in the major league home run category. He narrowed it down to 4 from Max Muncy (14, LA Dodgers) in first place.
Judge’s home run pace is also good. He also hit multiple home runs against the Tampa Bay Rays on the 14th, and in the last 3 games, he passed 4 balls over the fence.
As Judge regained his image as the home run king last year, the major league home run competition began in earnest.
Judge achieved the 30th multi-home run of his career that day, ranking 5th as the most multi-home run by a Yankees player. Babe Ruth tops the list with No. 68, followed by Mickey Mantle (No. 46), Lou Gehrig (No. 43) and Joe DiMaggio (No. 35).
