 Aaron Judge Slams Three Home Runs, Breaks Yankees Record

 In the Yankees' post-game media routine, the starting pitcher traditionally addresses reporters before any other players have their say.

 On Friday night, after Aaron Judge's impressive performance, newcomer Luke Weaver was willing to break tradition by addressing the media first.

With a nod toward his towering teammate, Weaver asked, "Don't you guys want to talk to Judge?" Both shared a grin across the room.

Weaver playfully deferred to Judge after his three-homer performance, sparking a 7-1 win, briefly reviving the Yankees' challenging season.

Judge remained optimistic about the Yankees' slim postseason chances, stating, "We're not out of it."

In a final, desperate attempt to salvage New York's season, Judge displayed his home run-hitting prowess, achieving a historic feat in the franchise's 121-year history.

Weaver, an eight-year veteran, expressed satisfaction: "It's nice to be on the right side of that" after joining the Yankees from Seattle recently.

Judge's initial homer, third inning, followed Cabrera and Peraza's singles. With one out and both on, he smashed a 420-ft sinker to right-center.

Boone praised Judge's precise hitting, mentioning the unusual wind conditions that night. Judge's hits found the right trajectory to stay in play.

Judge doubled in the first inning, went 4-for-4, showcasing recovery from a mid-season toe injury that sidelined him for 51 games.
