Yankees third baseman Miguel Andujar went 2-for-5 with a home run and a double in Monday's 14-1 win over the Minnesota Twins as he recorded an extra-base hit for the seventh straight game.
The 23-year-old Andujar, who went 4-for-4 in Sunday's win over the Toronto Blue Jays, continued his torrid pace with a solo home run in the second inning that gave the Yankees a 4-0 lead.
"He's really a gifted hitter and I think he's gotten comfortable," manager Aaron Boone said, according to Newsday's Laura Albanese.
Andujar has a seven-game hitting streak and an extra-base hit in each game, joining Mickey Mantle and Joe DiMaggio as the only other Yankees to accomplish the feat, according to The Athletic's Jayson Stark.
During his streak, Andujar is 15-for-29 with three home runs, eight doubles, one triple and eight RBIs. He has raised his batting line from .107/.133/.107 to .316/.333/.649.
"He's hitting pitcher's pitches and he's handling them," Boone said, "because he keeps his bat in the hitting zone for so long. ... It's one of the things why we think he has the chance to be such a good hitter."
