Aaron Judge turned in perhaps his best game of the season Sunday, hitting two home runs, a double, and a single, driving in four runs, and setting himself up to break the American League single-season home-run record this week.

All everyone could do around the New York Yankees’ clubhouse was marvel at Judge, whose 59 home runs are two shy of Roger Maris’ AL record. His 127 RBIs leads all of baseball and .316 batting average is one point shy of earning him the Triple Crown.

Judge’s 11th multihomer game tied the Detroit Tigers’ Hank Greenberg in 1938, and the Chicago Cubs’ Sammy Sosa in 1998.

"Sorry to repeat the same line, but it's historical," Yankees starter Gerrit Cole said. "I got nothing else for you. It's the greatest offensive season that I've personally ever witnessed. I don't know what else to say. I mean, it's wonderful. I'm riding it, dude. It's amazing."
