MILWAUKEE — It’s not a matter of if Aaron Judge will pass Roger Maris now, but when.

Aaron Judge hit two more homers on Sunday against the Brewers at American Family Field, giving him 59 on the season — one shy of Babe Ruth’s 60 and two short of Maris’ historic 61.

Judge hit his 58th homer with a solo shot in the third inning against right-hander Jason Alexander.

The opposite-field shot landed in the upper deck in right and cut the Yankees’ deficit to 4-2.
