Aaron Judge home runs: How to watch Yankees vs. Orioles, TV channel, live stream as slugger aims for No. 62

New York Yankees outfielder Aaron Judge hit his 61st home run of the season Wednesday night and now shares the lead with Roger Maris in the American League’s single-season home run leaderboard. Maris hit 61 home runs while wearing the number 9 61 years ago in 1961. Judge wears number 99, of course. There’s a neat symmetry to this milestone hunt.

The Yankees will host AL East rivals Baltimore Orioles on Saturday afternoon and weather could pose an issue as Hurricane Ian continues to scour the east coast. Rain is forecast for all day, and since the game has no impact on the postseason (the Yankees are seeded No. 2 and the O’s were eliminated), it cannot be made up. No decision has been made about the game yet.

If the weather cooperates and they play, you can watch Judge try to break his tie with Maris on Saturday:

scouting report

The Orioles will send right-hander Austin Voth (5-3, 4.19 ERA), a June waiver from the Washington Nationals, up the mound on Saturday. He never faced a judge. Voth has fared significantly better with the Orioles this year (2.77 ERA in 78 innings) than he has done with the Nationals his entire career (5.70 ERA in 181 2/3 innings).

Traditionally a fastball/cutter/curveball pitcher, the Orioles have helped Voth add a slider in recent weeks, and he’s been using the pitch more often as he gets more comfortable with it. He has excellent spin rates across the board and has a .92 HR/9 with Baltimore. The new version of Voth is a quality arm. Add in the fact that Judge has never seen him and he’ll face an uphill battle for 62nd place on Saturday.

Judge went 1 for 2 with a single and two walks (one on purpose) in Friday’s game. He’s walked 14 times in his last eight games as teams carefully field him and pitchers try not to be on the wrong end of the story.
