  • The 32-year-old hit .500 (10-for-20) with three homers, five RBI, five doubles, seven walks, seven runs scored, a 1.200 slugging percentage and a .630 on-base percentage while leading New York to a 6-0 record.

 

  • The California native led the Majors in on-base percentage, slugging, OPS (1.830) and extra-base hits (8); tied for the Major League lead in doubles and total bases (24); tied for the AL lead in batting average and walks; and tied for third in the AL in hits (10).

 

  • The 2022 AL MVP picked up four extra-base hits on Wednesday at Minnesota, marking his second career game with at least four extra-base hits after he also accomplished the feat last year on September 22nd. Judge became the fourth Yankee with at least two games of four-or-more extra-base hits, joining Hall of Famers Lou Gehrig (5 game); Joe DiMaggio (5 G); and Babe Ruth (2 G).

 

  • The 2017 AL Jackie Robinson Rookie of the Year had a hit in all six of his games and scored a run in five of the six contests. Overall, he has reached base safely in each of his last 16 games, over which he is batting .415 with 22 hits, 15 walks and .551 on-base percentage. He has reached base safely in 40 of his 48 games this season and reached multiple times in 28 games.

 

The five-time All-Star slugged home runs on Tuesday at Minnesota and on Friday and Sunday against the White Sox. His 13 homers lead the Yankees and are the third-most in MLB this season. Judge’s seven homers since May 1st are the second-most in the Majors behind only Kyle Tucker, while his .912 slugging percentage and 1.433 OPS are the best marks in Baseball.
