New York Yankees slugger Aaron Judge hit his league-leading 54th home run Monday. He has now homered in five of his last seven games, and is on pace to break the Roger Maris American League record of 61 set in 1961. The Judge home run came in the Yankees 135th game. Maris hit his 54th home run in the Yankees 139th game that season.
