Justice is now being served in record fashion.

New York Yankees outfielder Aaron Judge continued his extraordinary start to 2017 by homering for the 10th time this month in the seventh inning against the Baltimore Orioles on Saturday to tie the MLB record for home runs by a rookie in April.

"He's probably the most gifted baseball player I think I've ever been around," Matt Holliday, a 14-year veteran, told MLB.com's Bryan Hoch of Judge on Friday.

On top of tying the record for homers by a rookie in April, Judge is now one of just three Yankees ever to record double-digit long-balls in the first month of the season, joining Graig Nettles (11) and Alex Rodriguez (14).
