The New York Yankees have continued their early-season surge, picking up win No. 26 over the Baltimore Orioles on Monday night.
The lineup is scoring a ton of runs and hitting a bunch of home runs along the way.
There’s a reason why they’re called the Bronx Bombers.
They know how to hit.
In last night’s win in Baltimore, the Yanks got contributions from Anthony Rizzo, who blasted his 10th home run of the year, joining Aaron Judge and Giancarlo Stanton as the only members of the team who have hit double-digit homers.
ESPN Stats & Info tweeted about the home run and that now, this Yankees team is the first in franchise history to have three players with double-digit homers in their first 35 games.
Anthony Rizzo now has 10 home runs, joining Aaron Judge (12) and Giancarlo Stanton (10) in the 10-HR club.

Yanks Going Deep
This is a nice little bit of history for the Yankees.
They’ve always been known for having an explosive lineup that hits home runs and scores a bunch of runs, but to now have three players with double-digit homers through just the first 35 games of the season is impressive.
It’s a nice first to have if you’re the Yankees.
This team may just be built different from other Yankee squads.
Of course, each generation has seen its fair share of winning ballclubs.
But could this be the next great team?
Could this be the team that carries New York to title No. 28?
If Judge, Stanton, and Rizzo keep mashing home runs, this team is one that you should keep on your radar later in the season.
These Yankees can mash, and they can do it quite well.
We’ll see if they can continue the power surge that has gotten them to this point.
