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.
