The judge had walked three times and hit once before coming to the plate with a 4 – all-in nine tie. The 43,123 crowd was on his feet on every court, and Judge drove a 2-2 quick ball from Matt Barnes to the right of center.

“It’s a little under it,” said the judge. “A very windy night, so I was hoping it might have been blowing by the time I was hitting, but I just missed it.”

The ball left the bat at 113 mph, and fans waited in anticipation as the judge sprinted toward first base. But they were groaning in unison when Kiké Hernández made a step over the fence, not far from the 408-foot mark — leaving Judge still home shy of the MLS record set by Yankees player Roger Maris in 1961.

“Tonight, it’s a little cool. Maybe it wasn’t meant to be tonight. Maybe it’s another night,” Donaldson said.

“I thought the ball was gone.”

The judge also fired a runner at second base for helping hold off Boston in the ninth, showing his defensive prowess. Tommy Pham hit a single hopper from the right field wall against Clay Holmes (7-4). The judge played carom and off the caution track delivered a heavy blow to Isiah Kiner-Falefa’s delivery of the mark. This was the judge’s sixth pass this season.

Then in the 10th, with discus runner Marwin Gonzalez in second as the auto sprinter, Caleb Ort (0-2) deliberately walked into Gleiber Torres before Donaldson stopped a lone goal after a short dive by Xander Bogarts and into left field.

Giancarlo Stanton hit a two-part shot for the Yankees, and Harrison Bader had a fly-by for eighth after Stanton had a one-hit.

New York beats out 7 1/2-game in the AL East over Toronto and heads to the playoffs for the 24th time in 28 years.

“Great achievement. There is a lot of hard work over the course of the season to get to this point,” Judge said. “But I think you can ask anyone in this room: The job is not done. We have an end goal of getting out there, winning our league and preparing ourselves for post-season. And that is step number 1, step number 1 of the many steps to come.”

Triston Casas hit Homer solo and discus hitter Rhys McGuire delivered a three-in-four-stroke boost to Clark Schmidt’s seventh as Boston overcame a 3-0 delay.
