Over a span of six batters in this fourth inning…
The Yankees hit five home runs.
Back to back to back to Hicks to back to back

Five home runs in the inning, a Yankees franchise record.
Eighteen home runs over the last three days, the all-time MLB record.
And two ahead of the next closest team: the 2019 New York Yankees.
(Graphic shown after just the third home run of the inning^^)
Yankees are first team in MLB history to hit at least 6 HR in 3 straight games.

They started the season 16-6.
Then fell to 21-21.
Now they’ve won their eighth straight, back into the comfy relief of a sure spot in the playoffs. Back into the chase for the A.L. East title. Back to setting home run records.
Back to going back to back to back.
Back to being the Yankees.
