However, the New York Yankees were able to come back against the Boston Red Sox and Josh Donaldson’s walk-off single in the 10th gave them a 5-4 victory.

Judge’s long fly out was not only his fourth walk-off home run of the year, but also his 61st home run of the season, tying Roger Maris for the AL record in a season.

Aaron Judge’s 62nd home run ball will be worth more than Albert Pujols’ 700th, memory expert says

Barry Bonds, Mark McGuire and Sammy Sosa all surpassed Maris between 1998 and 2001, with many considering 61 to be the true record, so all eyes are on Judge from the Bronx.

Judge is a powerful figure, but once again, he couldn’t clear the center field wall where Monument Park sits 408 feet from home plate.

But everyone thought it was gone.

Although he was hitless on the night, he maintained his Gold Glove caliber defense in right field, throwing a perfect seed to keep the Red Sox’s potential leading run off base in the top of the ninth inning.

Judge walked three times in the game and each time the Red Sox pitchers were blown out.

It was Donaldson’s third walk-off hit of the season, and his second against Boston this year. In August, he hit a walk-off grand slam with three runs scored in extra innings, and on Opening Day, he had a walk-off single against Boston.

The Yankees also clinched a postseason spot with the win. It was their sixth consecutive season and their 24th trip in the last 28 seasons, missing only 2008, 2013, 2014 and 2016 in that span.

Judge now has three more games in the Bronx — against Boston — to get 61 and 62 before the Yankees advance to a three-game set in Toronto.
