New York slugger put his teammates in a bag

and led them to victory over the Rays that afternoon,

a victory that kept Tampa Bay from sweeping.

Judge scored both of New York's runs in a 2–1 victory

at Tropicana Field. On the game's 2nd pitch,

he smashed his 53rd home run of the season, 

a 450-foot missile that cleared the 2nd deck

on the left. In the 7th, the judge scuttled the house

on a sacrificial fly from rookie Osvaldo Cabrera.
