It didn't take long for the Yankees to extend their home run streak.

On Tuesday against the Blue Jays, DJ LeMahieu hit a lead-off home run to push the team's home run streak to 28 consecutive games, setting a new MLB record.

Aaron Judge followed LeMahieu's record-breaking hit with a dinger of his own. 

Judge became the 14th different player to homer during this impressive streak.

New York broke the record set by the 2002 Rangers, who had Alex Rodriguez at the time.
