(TSX / STATS) -- NEW YORK -- Six months ago, the New York Yankees thought if Aaron Judge could consistently get the barrel of the bat on pitches, many of those swings would result in home runs and other big hits.

Maybe not 50 home runs, but enough for Judge to be a productive run producer.

Judge became a record-breaking home run hitter Monday afternoon when he tied Mark McGwire's rookie mark for homers in the third inning. He then broke the record in the seventh as the Yankees beat the Kansas City Royals 11-3 during a makeup game.
