Aaron Judge sets Yankees record in win over the Diamondbacks

Despite a disappointing season for the New York Yankees, Aaron Judge continues to shine as a beacon of hope for the team.

With the Yankees unlikely to make the playoffs and their general manager, Brian Cashman, dubbing the season a "disaster," September has turned into an opportunity to test potential talent for the following year.

In a game against the Arizona Diamondbacks, 39,143 fans gathered at The Bronx, anticipating another remarkable performance from Judge.

He did not disappoint, hitting three home runs in a single game for the second time this year, making him the first Yankees player to achieve this feat in a single season.

This game served as a stark reminder of Judge's exceptional abilities and the contrasting struggles of the Yankees this season.

The previous night, Gerrit Cole had reminded everyone of his Cy Young Award-worthy season, emphasizing how the Yankees had squandered his prime performance.

Judge, despite missing significant time due to a torn ligament in his right big toe, has managed to hit 35 home runs in just 100 games. Despite playing only a few games in June and July, he is currently tied for third in home runs in the league.

For Judge, this season has been marked by brilliance but remains incomplete due to his eight-week absence after a collision with the Dodger Stadium right-field wall.

While he is on the cusp of repeating his record-setting performance from the previous year, the season will ultimately be remembered for its missed opportunities and unfulfilled potential.
