MLB roundup: Judge record HR lifts Yankees past Royals

(TSX / STATS) -- NEW YORK -- Aaron Judge tied Mark McGwire's rookie record for homers in the third inning and broke the mark in the seventh as the New York Yankees beat the Kansas City Royals 11-3 during a makeup game Monday afternoon.

Judge tied McGwire by hitting a full-count fastball from Jakob Junis (8-3) into the back rows of the lower portion of the right-center field seats just below the bleachers with one out in the third. Judge tied McGwire after looking at a called strike two and thinking he walked.

Judge reached 49 in his 150th game and 525th at-bat. McGwire did it in 151 games and 547 at-bats. In his second attempt at getting the 50th homer, Judge emphatically broke McGwire's mark, hitting a 2-1 breaking ball from Trevor Cahill into the left-center field seats and clearing the Royals bullpen, giving New York a 7-3 lead and becoming the fifth Yankee to reach 50 homers.
