Yankees outfielder Aaron Judge is giving two-time AL MVP Mike Trout a run for his money as the top slugger in baseball.
Judge was tied with Trout for the most home runs in MLB heading into Memorial Day, but it didn't take long for the rookie phenom to reclaim sole possession of the lead. Judge smashed home run No. 17 in the seventh inning of Monday's matchup with the Orioles, a solo shot off of Baltimore righty Dylan Bundy.
