Aaron Judge provided an exclamation point to the beginning of the game by hitting an opposite-field shot for back-to-back homers.

Last week, Eloy Jimenez provided the single best image of rebuilding progress to date for the White Sox, smashing a game-winning homer in the ninth inning against the Cubs, the team that traded him, at Wrigley Field, the park he always assumed would be the one he'd call home as a big leaguer. In the second inning, he served up another to Gleyber Torres and the Blue Jays never recovered in a 4-3 loss to the Yankees.

That broke the previous mark set by the Rangers, who homered in 27 consecutive games contests from August 11-Sept. Still, the Yankees are just the better team all around so I'm going NY. 9, 2002. NY has received a total of 50 home runs from 14 players during the impressive stretch.

Stanton goes down: Yankees star outfielder Giancarlo Stanton was removed from Tuesday night's game after three innings because of a right knee injury.

Teoscar returns: Teoscar Hernandez made his return to the outfield after a brief two-game absence because of a sore wrist. Left-handed pitcher James Paxton will try to keep the momentum going for the Yankees when he steps onto the mound opposite of Toronto's Trent Thornton. After a disappointing first full season in the majors a year ago, Moncada is having a much better go of things in 2019, bringing a.295/.347/.509 slash line into Monday night, when he belted his 13th home run of the season.
