The New York Yankees are the American League East champions, but Aaron Judge has some unfinished business to tend to Wednesday night against the host Toronto Blue Jays.

The Yankees clinched the AL East and a first-round playoff bye on Tuesday night with a 5-2 victory over the Blue Jays while Judge went 0-for-1 with four walks and two runs.

Judge remains with 60 home runs for the season going into the rubber match of the three-game series. He is chasing the AL record of 61 set in 1961 by New York's Roger Maris.
