Yankees slugger Aaron Judge made good on a pregame promise to a fan during Sunday night's game against the Dodgers.  

Ahead of the matchup, Judge was speaking with a fan and said, "I'll hit one for you tonight."

Well, Judge is a man of his word. With two outs in the third inning, the rightfielder crushed a solo shot to centerfield off Clayton Kershaw to give the Yankees a 2-1 lead.

Heading into Sunday's game, Judge was batting .270 this season with 15 home runs and 37 RBI. He's homered in every game of this weekend's series in Los Angeles.
