Judge keeps climbing list with big blast

Aaron Judge has about six weeks left to keep pursuing the record for most home runs by a rookie. His Wednesday night shot to center field at Citi Field was measured at 457 feet, equaling his second-longest HR of the season.

Despite HR, Judge sets dubious strikeout mark

Aaron Judge might have launched a moon shot in Wednesday's win over the Mets, but he also struck out for the 33rd straight game -- an MLB record for most consecutive games with a strikeout by a position player in a single season.

What angered Mets P Paul Sewald so much as he came off the field as the top of the 7th ended? Sewald was likely upset because home plate ump Chad Whitson missed a call on a 3-2 pitch to Aaron Hicks that would have been the 2nd out of the inning. The pitch (labeled "6") had a strike probability of 100%. Had Sewald gotten the call, Aaron Judge's pop out would have ended the inning. Instead, Didi Gregorius hit a go-ahead 2-run double.

Aaron Judge's mammoth home run was his 37th of the season. That ties Albert Pujols (2001 Cardinals) for 3rd-most by a rookie in a season. Judge trails Mark McGwire (49, 1987 Athletics) and Frank Robinson (38, 1956 Reds).

Well that was just a ridiculous home run by Yankees outfielder Aaron Judge. It went to Connecticut. He's not having a great second half in terms of making contact because pitchers are treating him different. And he was always going to swing and miss. But he should be among the top power bats for years. Second round on fantasy next year might be aggressive but it's 40-homers a year.

Jets LB Lorenzo Mauldin appeared in a Manhattan courtroom Wednesday morning for his scheduled arraignment on a misdemeanor assault charge, but there was a delay because prosecutors weren't ready to file paperwork, according to reports. No new court date was set. Mauldin is accused of punching a 22-year-old Queens man in the face during a nightclub confrontation on April 2. After court in the morning, Mauldin returned to the Jets and practiced.

The injury bug continues to bite the Mets, who made both Wilmer Flores and José Reyes late scratches with left rib cage injuries. The resultant lineup moves led to Travis d'Arnaud making his first career start at third base.
