Aaron Judge was 2-for-4 on Opening Day, then he took consecutive 0-for-4 collars, leaving him 2-for-12 three games in.
Ever since, No. 99 has hit safely in every game.
Judge kept his hitting streak alive on Friday with a fifth-inning RBI single to make it 11 games in a row with a hit. He was just 1-for-4 on the night, but he walked and stole his second base of the season.
For the year, Judge is hitting .340 in 14 games with three homers and nine RBIs. During his hitting streak, he’s raking at a .390 clip with three homers, nine RBIs and 11 walks.
“His at-bats have been so good,” manager Aaron Boone said. “He really can wear down a pitcher. Really from jump street this year it’s been at-bat quality for him whether it’s an extra-base hit or he drives in a run or works a walk.
“Whatever he does, it seems like he’s winning so many pitches in the course of the game. He makes it really hard on an opposing pitcher and he’s in a really good place.”
