The New York Yankees are hitting home runs with ridiculous consistency and DJ LeMahieu and Aaron Judge wasted no time on Tuesday.

The New York Yankees are on an absolute roll right now. They’ve won nine of their last 10 games as they continue to build a lead in the American League East. On Tuesday, DJ LeMahieu made history with a first-inning home run. It was the 28th straight game in which the Yankees hit a home run—an MLB record.

LeMahieu has been a godsend for manager Aaron Boone this season. Through all the injuries, the gold glove second baseman has been as steady as they come. He can give plus-defense at multiple positions and he’s currently leading the AL in batting average.

He is exactly what the Yankees needed this season—a contact hitter with defensive versatility.

Not to be outdone, Aaron Judge promptly followed that up with an opposite-field shot for his first dinger since returning to the lineup with an oblique injury. It was his sixth home run of the season.

Just for good measure, Gleyber Torres poked a solo shot into the short porch in right field. The Yankees are starting to heat up and it could be bad news for the rest of the AL East.

New York is looking to continue their hot streak before an unorthodox two straight days off on Thursday and Friday. However, these off days will include international travel. The Yankees travel to London to play two games against the Boston Red Sox.
