Aaron Judge: Top 5 Moments of Young Career

3. Robbing Lindor (2017 ALDS Game 3)

The Yankees came home to the Bronx with their backs against the wall in the 2017 ALDS after they dropped the first two games of the series to the Cleveland Indians.

Needing a spark, Judge delivered as with one on and one out and the game scoreless in the top of the sixth he took away a two-run home run from Francisco Lindor with a leaping grab.

Greg Bird’s seventh-inning solo-shot won the game for the Bombers and with victories in games four and five, the Yankees were able to come all the way back and win the series.

Without this home run robbery, who knows how the Yankees would have rebounded from trailing 2-0 in an elimination game in the Bronx.
