The Yankees have six games remaining this season for Judge to take sole possession of the rookie home run record. He broke it in the seventh against reliever Trevor Cahill, hammering a 2-1 change-up 408 feet to left-center field.

As hot as he is right now, it seems like a foregone conclusion that Judge will end up taking the record for himself and becoming the first rookie ever to reach 50 home runs. However, this record may be hard to approach, and Judge still has a week of games to add to it.

Judge tied the record in the third inning with a two-run dinger off of Royals starter Jake Junis. But on Monday, a new record was set by - who else?

The 25-year-old joins a group of baseball greats - Roger Maris, Babe Ruth (four times), Mickey Mantle (twice) and Alex Rodriguez - to hit 50 home runs as a member of the Yankees.
