    Alonso with his 20th HR tonight. A 421 ft shot to left.

    He is tied with Bellinger for 2nd in the Majors in HRs. 2 behind Yelich.

    Still on pace for 54 HRs. He might have a shot at Judge. Who knows!!

    Beating Judge is a long way off. I mentioned that earlier.

    Hitting 40 (half way there) would still be awesome.

    Of course Judge’s 57 is daunting but his pace through 60 games suggests it is in play. 26 I think is the Mets record (Strawberry). McGwire was the record holder pre-Judge at 49 I believe.

    He is also at 20 HR in 215 ABs (give or take). Assuming 500 ABs (which is a bit low for a full season), he comes in close to 50. Regardless, the dude is mashing the baseball.

    Indeed. 52. McGwire was 49, just checked.

    Judge also set a rookie record for walks with 127. I don’t think Alonso will get to that.

    Pete is a great hitter, but lets not Judge him so harshly!

    Bizarrely, Judge also set the rookie record for strikeouts with 208!!!!

    He also set the MLB record for consecutive games with at least one strikeout, 37, also in his rookie year.

    And I think that Babe Ruth held some striking out records as well and did that sully his fame?

    Another jack for Alonso today. A solo shot. Number 21 on the year and puts him past Bellinger for 2nd in the NL and Majors behind Yelich (at 23).

    Alonso with his 22nd of the year and I assume his first ever in Yankee Stadium. 424 ft shot to center, 3 run job.

    Still 2 behind Yelich but 2 ahead of Bellinger for 2nd in the MLB.
