The Yankees have an illustrious history that dates back more than a century.

But for all the legends to don the navy blue pinstripes, former Cubs first baseman Anthony Rizzo accomplished a franchise first on Wednesday.

Rizzo, with a solo home run against the Orioles, became the first Yankees player ever to register an RBI in each of his first six games with the team.

Rizzo is off to a strong start in New York since the Cubs traded him last week. He's hit three home runs in six games and entered Wednesday 7-for-16 in five games since the trade.

Rizzo's hot streak has corresponded with a strong stretch for the Yankees. They were on their way to a win late in Wednesday's game, which would make them 5-1 since acquiring the 2016 World Series champ.
