Aaron Judge belts 58th, 59th solo home runs

AARON Judge blasted a pair of solo home runs to raise his season total to 59 and move within two of the single-season American League record as the visiting New York Yankees avoided a series sweep with a 12-8 comeback victory over the Milwaukee Brewers on Sunday.

Mr. Judge homered in the third and again in the seventh to pull within two of the AL and Yankees team record of 61, set by Roger Maris in 1961. Mr. Judge also hit a two-run double in the ninth for a 12-6 lead.

Milwaukee (78-68), which is two games out of the third National League Wild Card spot, got two runs in the ninth on Jace Peterson’s pinch-hit ground-rule double. But the Brewers left the bases loaded.

New York (88-58), which trailed 3-0 in the first, pulled within 4-3 in the third on consecutive solo homers by Mr. Judge and Anthony Rizzo, his 31st. Mr. Rizzo returned Sunday after being on the injured list since Aug. 31 with headaches from an epidural injection for back issues. — Reuters
