Aaron Judge’s Historic Three-Homer Blitz Crushes Diamondbacks in Aggressive Yankees Win!

 Aaron Judge’s Historic Three-Homer Blitz Crushes Diamondbacks in Aggressive Yankees Win!

In a power-packed showdown, Aaron Judge left the Diamondbacks in ruins as he etched his name in Yankees history books with not one but three colossal homers in a single game. The Yankees cruised to a resounding 7-1 victory over the Arizona Diamondbacks, putting an abrupt end to the D-backs’ five-game winning streak.

Judge’s stellar performance didn’t just end Arizona’s triumphant run but also slashed their lead over the Chicago Cubs for the coveted National League Wild Card spot down to just one game. The Diamondbacks’ woes against New York teams continued, plummeting to a dismal 1-7 record this season, with six of those losses coming at the hands of the Mets.

The slugger’s relentless assault began with a thunderous three-run blast in the third inning, further extending the Yankees’ lead. But Judge wasn’t content with just that; he smashed a two-run rocket in the fifth, leaving rookie starter Brandon Pfaadt (2-9) shell-shocked. And just when you thought he was done, Judge launched his third homer with a solo drive in the seventh off Slade Cecconi.

This game marked Judge’s second career three-homer extravaganza, and he achieved both within the past month. It was his explosive bat that helped New York break their first nine-game losing streak since 1982 on August 23, when he also went deep three times against Washington.

Judge’s stats for the night were a jaw-dropping 4-for-4 with a double, tying his career-high six RBIs. In this incredible season, he’s maintaining a .267 average with 35 homers and 70 RBIs in just 100 games.

The reigning AL MVP showcased his dominance by securing his eighth career four-hit game, a feat he hadn’t accomplished since May 20 against Cincinnati. The six RBIs were his fourth time driving in such a haul.

While the Yankees moved two games above .500 at 78-76, they remain perilously close to being eliminated from playoff contention, making Judge’s historic performance bittersweet.

Judge’s first homer delivered a thunderous blow, giving the Yankees an early 3-0 lead. His two-run missile in the fifth widened the gap to 6-0, leaving fans in awe of his sheer power. As he rounded the bases after his third homer, Judge graciously acknowledged the roaring Yankee Stadium crowd of 39,143 with a curtain call, tipping his cap in style.

But here’s the kicker: Judge wasn’t even given a chance to hit in the eighth inning as Estevan Florial made the final out. Nevertheless, the indomitable Judge had already left an indelible mark.

This season has been particularly remarkable for Judge, who missed almost eight weeks due to an injury. He sprained his right big toe on June 3 at Dodger Stadium but made a triumphant return to the lineup on July 28.

A five-time All-Star, Judge made history last season by smashing 62 home runs, shattering the previous American League record of 61 set by the iconic Roger Maris in 1961.

In a stunning turn of events, former Diamondbacks pitcher Luke Weaver (3-5), who was claimed off waivers from Seattle on September 14, secured his first win for the Yankees in his second start. Weaver allowed only four hits in 5 1/3 innings, marking his first victory since July 3 with Cincinnati.

The Yankees’ bullpen shone as well, with Jhony Brito giving up Christian Walker’s 31st homer in the ninth but persevering for his first career save after pitching 3 2/3 innings.

This game showcased Judge’s dominance, the Yankees’ resilience, and the Diamondbacks’ misfortune. It’s a must-watch game for any baseball enthusiast, and it’s a testament to the electrifying power of Aaron Judge
