New York Yankees hitter and AL MVP favorite Aaron Judge will try again Saturday afternoon to hit his 61st home run of the season against rival Boston Red Sox. Judge became just the sixth player in history to hit 60 home runs Tuesday, and his next home run will break Roger Maris’ single-season record in the American League. Maris hit 61 homers with the 1961 Yankees.
Judge nearly hit his 61st home run Thursday night,. He’s 3 for 10 with two doubles, four walks and four strikeouts in three games since hitting his 60th homer.
Will Judge Maris catch (and even happen?) on Saturday? Here’s how you can tune in to find out:

Pivetta struggled badly against the Yankees season, allowing 20 runs and eight home runs in four starts and 18 2/3 innings. That includes four home runs in 10 innings at Yankee Stadium.
Judge had tremendous career success against Pivetta, going 5 for 11 (.455) with two home runs, four walks and a strikeout. He’s hit Pivetta deep in each of his last two starts against the Yankees (July 16 and September 13). Judge meets a well-known pitcher who he has had a lot of success against while trying to take on Maris on Saturday.
