    Yankees rookie Aaron Judge just broke Joe DiMaggio's record for home runs by a rookie with his 30th. I think MLB record is 49 by Mark McGwire.

    McGwire had 33 before the All-Star break his rookie season. Judge has 2 games and 3 more innings tonight to try to reach that.

    Bregman went 3 for 4 last night but his average has been hovering around .250 all season and he isn't in the lineup about 1 game a week.

    They sit him out Sundays like they do many regulars. His avg isn't relevant. His obp is. He's been driving the ball lately. He had a couple doubles. He has a lot of meaningless 9th inning homers like nothing I've ever seen.

    But yeah this judge mammoth is a site.

    1 for 5 with a double and a run scored tonight. Springer also hit his 20th double to go with his 2 dingers.

    Springer bats leadoff. He's a monster. The Astros are like 30 above 500.

    Hey I've waited my entire life for this year. I knew it would happen. This team is good. And their entire rotation was basically out the last couple months.

    Keuchel is still out. He's their ace.
