North Jersey Record Published 10:12 PM EDT Sep 28, 2018 It's been a while, but Aaron Judge has homered again. For his first time since drawing back in the Yankees' lineup in nearly two months, Aaron Judge went yard Friday against the Red Sox. It was his first dinger since July 21: The blast helped the Yankees tie the 1997 Mariners for the most team home runs in a season with 264. Before returning earlier this month, Judge had not played since July 26 after taking a pitch to the wrist. He was first activated off of the disabled list for fielding and running purposes.
