Aaron Judge has whiffed his way into the record books.

The New York Yankees slugger claimed the unenviable distinction of striking out more than anyone in a single series in MLB postseason history with his third-inning punchout during Game 5 of the ALDS on Wednesday.

Judge was struck out by Cleveland Indians starter Corey Kluber in both the first and third, giving him 14 strikeouts for the series. The record was previously shared by Brandon Moss, Austin Jackson, and Javier Baez.

PLAYER YEAR TEAM AB K
Aaron Judge 2017 NYY 17 14
Javier Baez 2016 CHC 30 13
Austin Jackson 2013 DET 20 13
Brandon Moss 2013 OAK 18 13

Judge, who struck out an MLB-high 208 times during the regular season, is 1-for-17 with one double and four walks in the series.
