Aaron Judge's 51st home run of the season in 1 of 3 Yankees wins over the Angels
That's what the Yankees are built for.
The Bombers were built to hit blasts, and on Tuesday night, Anthony Rizzo, Andrew Benintendi, and Aaron Judge each went deep to beat the Angels 7-4
The Yankees (79-51) snapped a three-game losing streak and gave themselves a chance to salvage their final trip to the West Coast
this season after splitting a four-game streak with low-A. The Yankees are 10-17 in the month of August and 15-23 since the All-Star breaks.
They maintained a seven-game lead over the Rays in the American League East. The Angels (56-72) lost for the first time in five games.
Judge homered for the second time in as many nights, giving him 51 major league home runs.
That's 10 points shy of the Yankees franchise and the American League record set by Roger Maris in 1961. A judge has 32 regular season games left.
Judge's number is also 21 shy of the MLB record set by Barry Bonds, who many baseball fans consider tainted due to his association with PED scandals.
