Despite Hitting Home Run, Judge Sets Longest Game Streak for Strikeouts
Aug 18, 2017, 00:59
The rookie sensation set a new Major League Baseball record for most consecutive games with a strikeout when he whiffed in the top of the ninth against the Mets. Dunn struck out in the first 32 games of the season. He reached the record in his final at-bat when the Yanks faced their cross-city rival, the New York Mets. "I've just got to keep swinging at the right pitches", Judge told reporters after Wednesday's game, as reported by New Jersey On-Line.
This record breaks the single-season record set by Adam Dunn in 2012 according to ESPN.
Despite breaking the strikeout record, the outfielder managed to hit a home run 457 feet onto the third deck in left field that reportedly traveled 117 miles per hour. This record has been around since 1971 when former pitcher Bill Stoneman struck out 35 games in a row with the Montreal Expos.
The home run by Judge, No. 37 for the season, overshadowed his strikeout, at least for teammates, coaches and fans who felt it traveled even further than the projected 457 feet.
Judge has been in a slump since his jaw-dropping Home Run Derby performance.
