All rise! Yankees’ Aaron Judge homers in fifth straight game

Aaron Judge is off to a torrid start to the 2020 MLB season and is absolutely locked in.

The New York Yankees slugger has homered in five straight games and has six on the season. He joins Alex Rodriguez (six in 2007) and Babe Ruth (five in 1932) as the only players in Yankees history to hit five home runs in the first eight games of the team’s season. Rodriguez won MVP that season, which is the type of path Judge seems to be on.

Judge homered in the second inning and again in the eighth of the Yankees’ 9-7 win over the Boston Red Sox on Sunday. He’s up to 14 RBI on the season, and his home runs have all come in wins for the Yankees, who are now an MLB-best 7-1.

Yankees manager Aaron Boone had lofty postgame praise for his slugger.

“I really think he’s on a mission right now,” Boone said, via Yankees reporter Bryan Hoch. When he got that clean bill of health right before Summer Camp started and he started ramping up, there’s just been an intensity level and energy level to the work he’s been able to do.”
