Yankees outfielder Aaron Judge absolutely demolished a two-run home run off of Mariners lefty Yusei Kikuchi in the first inning on Tuesday night in Seattle. It marked the 100th career home run for the slugger. It’s also his fourth homer in his last five games.

Judge is the third-fastest to 100 career home runs, doing so in 371 games. Teammate Gary Sánchez got there in 355 games and former Phillies first baseman Ryan Howard has the record at 325 games.

Following Tuesday’s dinger, Judge is batting .272/.384/.498 with 17 home runs, 40 RBI, and 54 runs scored in 337 plate appearances on the season.
