The Yankees wasted no time breaking the record of most consecutive games with a home run. D.J. LeMahieu led off the bottom of the first with a dinger against the Blue Jays, leading to the teams 28th straight game with a home run. This breaks the record of 27 straight games with a long ball set by the Texas Rangers in 2002.
With back-to-back home runs by DJ LeMahieu and Aaron Judge to begin the game, the Yankees extend their home run streak to 28 consecutive games, setting a new Major League record. This breaks the previous mark set by the Texas Rangers from 8/11-9/9/02.

LeMahieu is on the All-Star ballot to become the starting second basemen for the American League. This notable home run will certainly help his case as a lot of people will see his record-breaking homer.
The Yankees certainly have the power, and the stadium, to keep this home run record going. It’ll be fun to watch and see how many games the Bronx Bombers can go with a home run. This also isn’t the only 28 the Yankees have been chasing, as they’ll try to keep this power rolling through October to bring home the franchise’s 28 World Series championship.
