Judge Hits 56 & 57, Dodgers Wrap Up NL West

Jonathan Grant | September 14th, 2022

You know someone has done something special when fans of the Boston Red Sox cheer for a New York Yankees player. That’s exactly what took place on Tuesday night at Fenway Park as Aaron Judge continued his pursuit of history as the Yankees defeated the Red Sox 7-6 in ten innings to push their lead in the AL East up to six games over the Toronto Blue Jays. Judge now sits on 57 home runs for the season, four shy of Roger Maris’ all-time AL record of 61, courtesy of a pair of solo blasts.

The first of them came in the sixth inning and tied the game up at three apiece and the second of them came two frames later when he again tied it up at four and forced extras to be played. In the top of the tenth, Gleyber Torres hit a three-run double, and the Yanks held on to win in the end despite a rally from the hosts. Elsewhere, the Los Angeles Dodgers sealed up the NL West on Tuesday, a day after they had clinched their spot in the playoffs. They did so thanks to a 4-0 win in Arizona over the Diamondbacks, bouncing back after surrendering top spot to the Giants last season. Clayton Kershaw was fantastic over seven scoreless innings, giving up just two hits, while Joey Gallo, Freddie Freeman, and Max Muncy all hit homers.
