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.
