Yankees break record with HR in 28th game


The New York Yankees wasted no time in breaking the major league record for the longest streak of consecutive games with a home run.

DJ LeMahieu‘s leadoff homer off Toronto‘s Clayton Richard in the bottom of the first inning on Tuesday made it 28 straight games with a home run, breaking the record set by the 2002 Texas Rangers.

With this current streak, 14 different Yankees have combined to hit 49 home runs. Aaron Judge got his first of the streak right after LeMahieu.

The last game in which the Yankees failed to hit a home run was May 25 against the Kansas City Royals.

Last season, the Yankees set a separate major league homer-hitting record. Their 267 are the most hit by a team in a single season.
