Aaron Judge bids to make history after hitting his 48th homer of the season

The New York Yankees star, Aaron Judge has now finished 48 home runs after hitting against the New York Mets this week in the Subway Series.

His MLB-leading 48th homer came as he launched a drive 453 feet into the bleachers to help the Yankees sweep the two-game series against their cross-town rivals with another 4-2 win.

He is now back on track to overtake Roger Maris' historic AL record of 61 homers in a single season, set back in 1961.

The Yankees currently lead the AL East by eight games and have now recorded three straight wins for just the second time since the All-Star break.

"I think the swagger has always been there," Judge told reporters after the game.

"I think it just took a little reminder of who we are and what type of baseball we play. We got it back." he added.

The Yankees now fly to California to face the Oakland Athletics in their next regular season game, with all eyes on Judge.
