As we approach the end of May with just one game remaining for the New York Yankees, Aaron Judge is poised to etch his name in the record books. This imminent accomplishment takes place at the expense of fellow Bronx Bombers icon, Babe Ruth. After the upcoming finale against the Seattle Mariners on Tuesday night, Judge, the current American League MVP, is expected to conclude May with an unparalleled road OPS (on-base plus slugging) for a single month, a feat unmatched in Major League Baseball in nearly 100 years.
Considering Judge’s impressive performance against the Mariners’ pitchers throughout this series, it’s plausible to expect his May road OPS to surge even higher. In the two games of the series so far, Judge has demonstrated exceptional form, going 5-for-7 with three homers and four RBIs. Moreover, he’s displayed discipline at the plate, taking three walks and striking out merely twice during this period. As he enters the series finale against Seattle, Judge boasts an incredible May OPS of 1.402, along with a .356 batting average, 12 home runs, and 25 RBIs over 73 at-bats.
