In a rare night game in Yankee Stadium on Saturday, the Yankees tied a 78-year-old record.  The Bombers have hit a home run in 25 straight games and the feeling among fans and the team is just electric.

"The Yankees' current home run streak is the second longest in Yankees history, trailing only a 25-gamer in 1941. That '41 team went on to win the World Series and included six Hall of Famers, by the way: Phil Rizzuto, Joe DiMaggio, Bill Dickey, Joe Gordon, Lefty Gomez and Red Ruffing," reported

The 2002 Texas Rangers hit a home run in 27 straight games and the Yankees could very well surpass that record, giving them just another reason to get excited about being, well the Yankees!

The team has spread the wealth of home runs across the line up, with guys like Gleyber Torres, Gary Sanchez and Cameron Maybin feeding the streak.  It was Gio Urshela who gave the Yankees the 25th home run of the streak and his excitement was felt across the Stadium.

Although they were not dingers, also exciting the line up has been Giancarlo Stanton, who's clutch hits in the 6th and 7th gave the Yankees the runs they needed to best Houston in the series, taking the first three out of four games against the Astros.

With Old Timer's Day today and Yankee Hall of Famer Mariano Rivera back in pinstripes for his first appearance in the Yankee tradition, the Yankees have so much to celebrate these days: A fully stacked line up, tremendous options in the field and yes, a franchise record tie for the most consecutive home runs.

Let's keep the momentum going.
