Lewandowski stretched his scoring run to 19 consecutive games across all competitions for Bayern. The Poland star's second-half goal also ensured he became the first Bundesliga player to score in 13 consecutive home games.
The visitors made a solid start until Leroy Sané opened the scoring with a brilliant free-kick in the 17th minute. It was Bayern's first shot on target.
The clubs also met in the Bundesliga 45 years ago to the day, when Bochum – then playing at home – were four goals up against Bayern at halftime. Bayern fought back in the second half to win 6-5 with future club president Uli Hoeneß scoring the winner in the 89th.
Lewandowski has his own history to write, however. The Poland striker made it 5-0 in the 61st to extend his club-record scoring run. He has scored in every game since Feb. 15.
Kimmich got his second goal four minutes later and substitute Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting made it 7-0 in the 79th.
It could have been worse for Bochum. Thomas Müller thought he made it 8-0 but his goal was ruled out through VAR for offside.
Leipzig was playing in Cologne late.
