    We have another rookie HR record to report. Josh Bell of the Pirates to start their thrashing of the Cubs on Monday hit his 24th HR, a new MLB rookie record for a switch-hitter.

    Still more rookie round-tripper roundup:

    With his 40th HR of 2017, Aaron Judge of the Yankees became only the 2nd player in MLB history to reach and/or surpass 40 taters in his rookie season (the other was Mark McGwire with 49 in 1987).

    The Minnesota Twins, in their 16-0 rout of San Diego Tuesday night, became the first MLB team ever to hit a HR in the first 7 innings of a game.


    Also, the Dodgers' 12-game losing streak is the longest the team has experienced in their entire history in Los Angeles (1958-current).

    In Tuesday night's game against Atlanta, Max Scherzer became only the fourth pitcher in MLB history to post 4 consecutive seasons of 250 or more Ks. The three who preceded him: Fergie Jenkins, Pedro Martinez and Randy Johnson, who holds the all time record of consecutive 250K+ years (6).

    While completing a sweep of the Twins on Wednesday, SS Didi Gregorius knocked Derek Jeter out of the Yankees team record books in 1 category. Gregorius hit his 25th HR of 2017, claiming the record for a Yankees SS in one season from Jeter.

    Aaron Judge just set another record, although not one he'll be proud of. Judge struck out for the 200th time in a game, the first rookie to whiff 200 times and a season, and a new MLB record, passing Kris Bryant of the Cubs, who went down on strikes 199 times in 2015. Judge reached the mark in 43 fewer AB than what Bryant set the old record in.
