Aaron Judge's 200th career home run leads Yankees to win over the Royals

NEW YORK -- As members of the greatest teams in recent Yankees history milled about in Monument Park on Saturday afternoon, inspecting the plaques and retired numbers, one name continued to spill from their lips. Those assembled alumni marveled at the special season Aaron Judge is enjoying, while also wondering aloud about his pinstriped future.

The favorite for the American League Most Valuable Player Award, Judge continued to show he can keep pace with legends and everyone else, becoming the second-fastest player in AL/NL history to blast 200 career home runs in the Bombers’ 8-2 victory over the Royals at Yankee Stadium.

“It’s great; a lot of hard work with a lot of people over the years to get to this point,” Judge said. “I’m excited to get that out of the way, plus we got a win, so just keep it rolling.”
