Aaron Judge did not win the Triple Crown, but he’s front and centre in the MLB statistical leaders for the season.

The New York Yankees star, who set an American League record with 62 home runs this season, fell just short of the Triple Crown as he finished second in batting average to Luis Arreaz of the Minnesota Twins in the AL.

Judge was the leader in home runs and RBIs.

Among the Toronto Blue Jays, Bo Bichette led the way in hits for the second year in a row, Alek Manoah was tied for second in wins and was third in ERA, while Jordan Romano was third in saves.
