Aaron Judge’s two-run home run in the sixth inning of the Yankees’ 9-2 win over the Red Sox on Sunday night ended the slugger’s longest homer drought of the season.
Judge came to bat for the fourth time in the game to face Boston reliever and former Met Addison Reed.
He emerged as the front-runner for the AL Rookie of the Year with a sensational first half that ended with him batting .330 with 30 home runs and 66 RBIs.
Judge has often worn a post-game wrap on his left shoulder, but he and manager Joe Girardi have insisted that it isn’t the reason for the drop in production.
One thing that has made Girardi optimistic about Judge is the return of Matt Holliday three days ago from his second stint on the disabled list.
