BOSTON -- Aaron Judge now stands just four big swings away from equaling Roger Maris' 61-year-old American League record for home runs in a single season, belting his Major League-leading 56th and 57th home runs in Tuesday's 7-6 extra-innings win over the Red Sox at Fenway Park.

Judge connected for solo shots in the sixth and eighth innings, tying the game both times. No. 56 came on a hanging Nick Pivetta curveball that landed in Boston's bullpen. It came off Judge’s bat at 109.7 mph and traveled 383 feet, as calculated by Statcast.

Then in the eighth, Judge was at it again, sending a Garrett Whitlock slider over the Green Monster in left field for No. 57. That one came off Judge’s bat at 100.5 mph, traveling 389 feet.
