Aaron Judge matched the sentiment of the entire stadium around him.

Sitting on 60 home runs, he struck out for the second time in the seventh inning, with the Yankees still tied with the Red Sox 5-5 on Saturday. He checked his swing on a 2-2 pitch, and first base umpire Chris Conroy ruled that he swung, prompting boos to shower across Yankee Stadium.

Anthony Rizzo subsequently hit a two-run homer, however, to give the Yankees’ a 7-5 lead.
