Yankees blast five home runs in explosive fourth inning (New York Post)

It’s looking like it will be eight straight wins for the Yankees.

The Bombers lived up to their name in a ridiculous fourth inning, hitting five home runs against the Blue Jays, including a stretch of three in a row.

The streak was started by Brett Gardner, DJ LeMahieu and Luke Voit, going back-to-back-to-back. After a strike out by Aaron Hicks, Giancarlo Stanton and Gleyber Torres went back-to-back.

The run also meant the Yankees set a new team record for the most home runs (18) in a three-game set, according to The Post’s Joel Sherman.

The Yankees entered Thursday’s matchup with Toronto as the winners of seven straight. They held a 9-3 lead through five innings.
