Aaron Judge Sets Embarrassing MLB Record In Yankees' Win Over Mets

The rookie sensation set a new Major League Baseball record for most consecutive games with a strikeout when he whiffed in the top of the ninth against the Mets.

With that K, the All-Star now has struck out in 33 consecutive games, which is the most all-time in a single season by a non-pitcher.

Something tells me the Yankees are willing to put up with all the strikeouts as long as Judge keeps hitting dingers.

Judge was a little more serious in evaluating his penchant for strikeouts in greater detail.

If you had been asked this time last month, this is the last record you would have expected Aaron Judge to break this season. "If I keep taking my good swings, swing at the right pitches, good things will happen".

Aaron Judge's home run into the third deck in left Citi Field was officially measured at 457 feet.

The Yankees' 25-year-old rookie slugger now has 37 homers - including two in the past three games. Though it should be noted that Dunn's streak is actually 36 games, stretching back to the end of the 2012 season.

But it's telling that even in the midst of a record-setting streak of strikeouts, Judge has still been playable, even productive at times.
