The New York Yankees are destroying the baseball in their three-game series against the Toronto Blue Jays. The Yankees hit six home runs in a 20-6 victory on Tuesday, seven home runs in a 13-2 win on Wednesday, and they currently have six home runs on Thursday night. That’s 19 home runs over the three-game series, and that’s an MLB record. The Yankees are also the first team to hit at least six homers in three straight games.

And five of the home runs on Thursday came in one inning, tying an MLB record. Three of the dingers happened on consecutive pitches.

Brett Gardner got the homer barrage started with this two-run blast in the fourth inning:

That was followed by DJ LeMahieu hitting an opposite-field dinger on the next pitch:

And then Luke Voit hit an oppo taco of his own on the next pitch, making it back-to-back-to-back jacks:

Two batters later, Stanton gave the Yankees yet another homer to right field:

And Gleyber Torres made it back-to-back dingers when he crushed this blast:

The sixth homer of the night came on this Gary Sanchez dinger in the seventh inning:

The Yankees were a disappointing 21-21 a week ago (with injuries playing a big part in that), but a victory on Thursday night would give them an eight-game winning streak. This lineup is terrifying, and they’re getting hot at the right time with the postseason right around the corner.
