Aaron Judge: Top 5 Moments of Young Career

2. Fueling The Comeback vs. Houston (2017 ALCS Game 4) 

The Yankees were in jeopardy of falling behind the Houston Astros 3-1 in the 2017 ALCS as they trailed 4-0 in Game 4, entering the bottom of the seventh.

In the bottom of the seventh, Judge started the Yankees comeback with a solo home run to cut the lead to 4-1. Then in the bottom of the eighth, Judge sent Yankee Stadium into a frenzy as he ripped a game-tying double and later scored on a go-ahead two-run double by Gary Sanchez.

The Yankees went onto win the game 6-4 and tied the series at two games apiece. However, we all know how this series ended up playing out and the Yankees lost to the Astros in seven games.

This was still quite the series to be proud of though once you take into account that the Astros were committing one of the biggest cheating scandals in sports history throughout this postseason.
