He simply cannot be stopped.

New York Yankees right fielder - and possible bat-swinging cyborg - Aaron Judge hit yet another baseball to Albany on Wednesday night when he demolished a Marcus Stroman offering to straightaway center field at Yankee Stadium in the second inning for his league-leading 13th homer of 2017. The baseball, which lived a full life until the moment it left Judge's bat at an exit velocity of 112 mph, ultimately died inside Monument Park some 435 feet from home plate.

The blast made the 25-year-old Judge - who tied the MLB record for most April home runs by a rookie - the youngest player in baseball history to hit 13 homers in his team's first 26 games of a season, according to Yankees PR.

The Yankees' single-season rookie record for home runs is held by a man named Joe DiMaggio, who hit 29 bombs in 1936. At this pace, Judge may break Joltin' Joe's club record by the All-Star break.

Judge's homer helped propel his team to an 8-6 win over the Toronto Blue Jays, moving the Yankees' record in games when Judge has homered this season to an impeccable 11-0.
