Aaron Judge ends 15-game home run drought, Yankees place Aaron Hicks on the 10 ...

Aaron Judge hadn’t gone deep in 15 games, but the American League leader ended the longest power drought of his rookie season with a moonshot home run to account for the Yankees’ final two runs in Sunday’s 9-2 victory over Boston.

Judge hadn’t homered since Aug. 16 against the Mets at Citi Field, a span of 57 at-bats without one, before connecting against ex-Mets reliever Addison Reed for his 38th of the season in the Yanks’ six-run sixth inning.

Not even a month since returning from a six-week stint on the shelf due to a right oblique strain, Aaron Hicks was placed Sunday on the 10-day DL with a similar injury to his left side.

“Our hope is when we get back from this road trip (Thursday of next week), that he will be able to start swinging a bat,” Girardi said.

Clint Frazier (left oblique strain) is slated to begin a minor-league rehab assignment for Double-A Trenton on Wednesday.
