It took all of six pitches for the Yankees to rewrite the history books on Tuesday night.
Leading off the game for the Yankees, DJ LeMahieu ripped a ball just inside the left-field foul pole, extending the Yankees' streak to 28 consecutive games with a home run, a new Major League record.
"I've heard the players comment on it, and they're very aware of it," Aaron Boone said after the game. "It's impressive to me. It's a tribute to having a lot of really good hitters and guys who can hit for power."
During that streak the Yankees have hit a total of 51 home runs. They've also hit multiple home runs in eight of their last nine games.
The record was previously set by the 2002 Texas Rangers.
For good measure, Aaron Judge followed up LeMahieu's blast with one of his own, giving the Yankees an early 2-0 lead over Clayton Richard and the Blue Jays. Gleyber Torres then added the third Bombers' blast of the game in the bottom of the second, before Edwin Encarnacion added a fourth.
