Aaron Judge Home Runs: How to watch Yankees vs. Red Sox live stream on Apple TV+ with HR #61 in sight

Aaron Judge will make another slap in history Friday night as the New York Yankees continue their run against the Boston Red Sox. Judge hit his 60th home run of the season on Tuesday, within a range where he tied Roger Maris for most in American League and Yankee season history.

Judge has already become one of six players with a 60-homer season. He’s the first player to cross that threshold since Barry Bonds and Sammy Sosa each did in 2001. Judge now ties Babe Ruth for second most in Yankees and AL history and eighth most overall. Richter almost delivered No. 61 on Thursday night, Hitting what turned out to be a long flyout in the late stages of a Yankees win.

Will Judge match or surpass Maris on Friday night? Here’s how you can watch.

scouting report

The Red Sox start Friday night with veteran southpaw Rich Hill. He has a 4.70 ERA (89 ERA+) and a strikeout-to-walk ratio of 2.73 over 23 starts. It’s worth noting that Hill is averaging about 20 batters per start, suggesting he may face Judge three times on Friday night.

Hill’s pitch breakdown against right-handed batters this season hinges on his four-seamer, curveball and cutter. These three pitches together make up 92 percent of its total offering. Hill especially loves his fourseamer and curveball, the latter serving as his trademark.

It’s worth noting that Hill has given up a home run for every nine innings this season. That’s one of his better odds in recent years.

Batter-versus-pitcher numbers have little predictive value, but they’re a useful piece of trivia. In this case, Hill and Judge have feuded five times in their respective careers: Judge has two hits (one single, one double) in four at-bats. On his other record appearance, he was hit by a pitch.
