ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. — Aaron Judge is making his individual mark felt in every game while leading his team’s efforts trying to stop the Yankees’ slide. On Sunday, he hit his 53rd homer and moved closer to Roger Maris’ 61 home run record in a single season. His offense helped the Yankees defeat the Rays 2-1 at Tropicana Field.

Judge hit his 53rd home run of the season to start off Sunday’s game against the Rays. This puts Aaron eight home runs short of Maris’ 1961 record of 61 home runs.

Additionally, it was Judge’s career-high home run, surpassing the 52 he hit as a rookie in 2017.

The outfielder remains the only positive aspect of a Yankee lineup that has drastically deteriorated over the past few games. He now needs 9 more home runs in to make the MLB record in his name.

Fans and baseball analysts feel that Aaron will agree to a new contract with the Yankees and won’t leave New York after this season when his one-year deal expires.

What do you think? Will he be able to break the record? How many homers Aaron Judge will score in 2022?
