Yankees outfielder Aaron Judge’s postgame quote after Sunday night’s win is unbelievable.

The New York Yankees moved to 7-1 on the young season after completing a sweep of the Boston Red Sox, matching their best eight-game start in franchise history.

While most fans would agree that the early success has been a collective effort, there’s one player seemingly putting the club on his back in every possible clutch scenario. It’s Aaron Judge in case you needed us to spell it out for you.

The two-time All-Star extended his career-best streak by homering in a fifth consecutive game, then added a go-ahead two-run moonshot in the eighth inning to give the Yankees a 9-7 lead from which they wouldn’t look back.

What’s so crazy about Judge’s hot streak? We’re glad you asked, because he revealed during his postgame interview that he isn’t even “locked in” yet.

My goodness. Say a prayer for the Philadelphia Phillies, who begin a four-game set against the Yankees tonight at the Stadium, because we haven’t even been watching the locked in version of Judge this past week.

The all-world slugger became the first Yankees player to go yard in five straight contests since Alex Rodriguez in 2007. Not only does he lead MLB with six home runs, but he also became the first player to launch five go-ahead dingers in his team’s first eight games of a season.

It’s like we said earlier: Judge literally isn’t fazed by these tense late-game scenarios.

Because it’s worth watching for the 99th time (see what we did there), here’s Judge absolutely demolishing Red Sox reliever Matt Barnes’ middle school breaking ball with two outs in the bottom of the eighth inning to put the Yankees back on top.

We’ve seen the former Rookie of the Year catch fire before, but the sheer power, consistency and clutch gene he’s showcasing right now after so many question marks regarding his health entering the year is almost unfathomable.

It’s obviously still extremely early, but right now you are looking at the undisputed favorite to hoist the AL MVP award…and he’s apparently still searching for that “locked in” feeling.
