Judge's two-run shot to right in the third extended the Yankees' lead to 3-0. He connected twice in Yankee Stadium, giving him 50 home runs on the season.

"They kind of told me: 'You got to go out there".

"I think if there's a player deserving of a curtain call, I think what he did today, reaching that milestone, I think he deserved to go out", Girardi said".

Mark McGwire owned the previous mark, having hit 49 home runs for the Oakland Athletics in 1987.

Even still, Judge has been special, leading the world north of Miami in round-trippers. Team-mate Gary Sanchez followed Judge with his 33rd homer of the season.

Iraq's Kurdish Region Votes In Controversial Independence Referendum
The Kurds are likely to approve the referendum, but they are not expected to result in any immediate declaration of independence. According to the IHREC, more than 5 million people are eligible to vote in the Kurdistan Region's independence referendum .

The Yankees have six games remaining this season for Judge to take sole possession of the rookie home run record. The game featured six home runs in total. After going 2-4 on Monday with both hits being home runs, Judge has put himself in conversation with elite company. They were Judge and Babe Ruth in 1920. He hit 30 homers prior to the All-Star break, putting him on pace for 57, and produced an AL-best 5.3 Wins Above Replacement, catapulting him into the conversation for MVP.

NY closed within four games of AL East-leading Boston and needs one win or a Minnesota loss to clinch home field in the AL wild-card game on October 3.

CC Sabathia, a pending free agent at the conclusion of the season, gave up three runs on six hits over six-plus innings, with the runs coming on back-to-back homers by Salvador Perez and Mike Moustakas to start the seventh.

Didi Gregorius hit a run-scoring groundout in the first inning, scored on Matt Holliday's double in the sixth and added an RBI single in the eighth. He allowed six hits in six-plus innings, tying Yankees great Whitey Ford with 236 wins.

Not bad work from Joe Girardi's big, goofy boy.
