The New York Yankees posted a 5-4 victory over the Texas Rangers in Tuesday’s matinee.

It was the first game of a doubleheader.

Since the Yanks had already clinched their playoff berth, AL East division and one of two first-round byes in the postseason, they were only playing for Aaron Judge.

The All-Star outfielder entered Tuesday afternoon needing just one more home run to take sole possession of the American League record for most home runs in a single season.

Until Tuesday he shared it with Roger Maris: they are both 61.

Every at-bat counts: Having played more than 50 straight games, Judge isn’t about to rest right now; not until he breaks the record.

That’s why when the Yankees secured another at-bat for him in the ninth inning of Tuesday’s matinee, Yankees fans in Texas cheered loudly.

“Yankees catcher Kyle Higashioka gets a standing ovation for walking with two outs in the 9th, remembering Aaron Judge,” tweeted Bob Nightengale of USA Today.

Registration is finally here

Judge ended up with a force out, so the at-bat wasn’t particularly fruitful.

Still, at least Higashioka earned a standing ovation.

Probably the strongest I have ever received.

“Higashioka: ‘I think that was the best ovation I’ve ever received,’” Nightengale tweeted, after speaking with the receiver.

The chase finally ended on Tuesday night when Judge broke the record with an absolute bang.

This is a relief for him and everyone involved in baseball, and the Yankees in particular so they can focus on the postseason.
