WATCH: Aaron Judge Extends Homer Streak to 5 Games With 2 More Dingers


Aaron Judge cannot stop hitting dingers.

The Yankees slugger was at it again, homering in his fifth consecutive game on Sunday night against the Boston Red Sox.

And to make this one even sweeter, he hit two -- including the go-ahead home run in the eighth inning.

Judge stepped up to the plate in the bottom of the eighth inning with two outs and one on in a tie game when he ripped a 2-0 knuckle curve from Matt Barnes 468 feet into the left-center field bleachers to give the Yankees a 9-7 lead and eventual victory to complete a three-game sweep and extend the Bombers to 7-1 on the season.

Even the Red Sox outfielders had to turn and watch the replay on the video board because it was so impressive.

Judge extended his home run streak in the second inning when he turned on an 89 mph fastball on the inside corner off Matt Hall for a three-run homer, which gave the Yankees a 3-2 lead.

The home run landed into the second deck in left field, traveling 418 feet with an exit velocity of 107.9 mph.

Judge’s six home runs in his first eight games is the major-league lead.

It is the first five-game home run streak in Judge’s career and first time a Yankees player has done it since Alex Rodriguez – who was calling Sunday’s game on ESPN – did it in 2007. His six home runs in the first eight games of the season is also the first time since A-Rod's 2007 season, in which he won the MVP.

The first blast also extended the Yankees’ streak of a hitting a home run in each of their eight games this season and had made 20 consecutive runs scored via a home run.

The record for most consecutive games with a home run by a single player is eight, which is held by three players: Ken Griffey Jr., Dale Long and Don Mattingly.

Judge will aim to make it six games in a row on Monday when the Yankees host the Philadelphia Phillies with former Cy Young Award winner Jake Arrieta taking the mound for the Phils.
