New York Yankees fans hoped for this Aaron Judge version, healthy and working his way towards a potential
60-homer season. Matt Carpenter is an entirely different story. The former St. Louis Cardinals slugger was put on the
scrap pile in May. It was a big question mark. Manager Aaron Boone stated, "It has become an exclamation mark."
New York is now one win away with a series win over its bitter division rival. Judge hit two homers to match Roger
Maris' 33-year-old franchise record. Carpenter also drove in seven runs and connected twice, as the Yankees dominated
the Boston Red Sox 14-1 on Saturday night. After losing five of six games, the Yankees were leading in
major leagues and seemed to be struggling again when Rafael Devers struck a homer in the first inning. Jameson
Taillon remained composed, retiring 17 of his last batters and pitching one-run over six innings. Ryan Weber ended
New York's three-hitter, with a three-inning save. This was his first career save and earned the Yankees their 28th
major league comeback win. Their 63 wins represent the franchise's most significant win before the All-Star
break. Judge took a solo shot against Nick Pivetta in fifth, and ran a two-run heist against Kaleb Orth in sixth. He is on
pace to hit 59 home runs and could challenge Maris' 1961 club record of 61. Maris had 33 home runs at the All
Star break in that season. Judge stated, "It's amazing." "We still have one more day. "Don't let me down now."
