Aaron Judge Should Expect More Intentional Walks as He Pursues Home Run Record

Aaron Judge is used to opponents pitching around him, but the Twins didn’t even pretend to engage the Yankees slugger on multiple occasions Wednesday.

Minnesota intentionally walked Judge three times over the course of a double-header. New York won both games, and the outfielder hit his 55th home run of the season in the first contest. The blast came before the Twins walked Judge a total of five times between the two games.

While Judge did strikeout three times on Wednesday, it became clear that Twins manager Rocco Baldelli wanted nothing to do with the MVP candidate in tight situations.
