Aaron Judge hit his 60th home run of the year Tuesday night against the Pittsburgh Pirates.

He’s just one big swing away from tying Roger Maris’ long-standing American League record for most home runs in a season. He is currently tied with Babe Ruth’s tally of 60 home runs. Judge is only the third Yankee in history to reach that milestone.

Naturally, everyone’s attention is on the American League record, and fans have been eagerly awaiting that historic moment. Since he reached No. 60, Judge has gone four games without digging deep.

Judge’s batting average dropped to .314 after tonight’s game as the Red Sox’s Xander Bogaerts went 2-for-4 and regained the AL lead at .315. Judge has a league-leading 128 RBI and is in contention for the first MLB Triple Crown since Miguel Cabrera in 2012.
