New York Yankees: Giancarlo Stanton in ‘Rookie of the Year’ is flawless

Sep 26 2018 Boston MA USA Boston Red Sox relief pitcher Craig Kimbrel reacts after allowing a run in the ninth inning against the

The fourth-inning home run by NY rookie Gleyber Torres on Saturday at Boston was the 265th homer of the season for the Yankees, surpassing the 1997 Seattle Mariners for the most in a single season in major league history.

The Yankees have one more chance to add to the record total Sunday as they try to complete a three-game series sweep against the AL East champion Red Sox, who they could meet again next week in the playoffs.

Martinez passed Dick Stuart (42, 1963) for the most home runs hit by a Boston player in his first season with the club. A lot of them are tasteless and show little to no class. Yankees star Giancarlo Stanton homered in Saturday's 8-5 win against the Red Sox.

The team has already made franchise history, winning more games this season than any Red Sox team from the past has ever won.

The verdict on Cora's first season at the helm could hinge on the Red Sox' ability to suppress the Yankees' sluggers in a potential best-of-five division series - provided the Yankees beat the Athletics on Wednesday.

Voit's solo home run in the seventh landed in the home bullpen.

Haap blanked the Sox on one hit over five innings and probably had Sox fans wishing Boston had acquired him instead of Nathan Eovaldi, but Steve Pearce pounded a grand slam off him with two outs in the sixth to make it 8-4. But by his own home run ball? "We just happened to kind of all go through them at the same time", he said.

And now the Yankees don't have to fly cross country to play in a hostile environment, where even a win would lead to turning around and flying right back to Boston.

Aaron Judge's first home run since returning from the disabled list was a significant one.

Stanton also poked a bit of fun at the fan for throwing back the Yankees' record 266th home run of the season.

Chris Sale is set to get the ball for the Sox when they take the field for Game 1 of the American League Division Series on Friday night at Fenway Park.

Stanton said he doesn't believe the man meant to hit him.

Host teams are 5-7 all time in wild-card games, with the Yankees having split the two they have played (2015, 2017).

A North Carolina native and a current resident of storm-ravaged Wilmington, Nixon spent parts of 10 seasons in Boston after being drafted seventh overall in 1993 out of New Hanover High School. In all, the usually bitter rivals ran out 26 position players and 15 pitchers, with Red Sox manager Alex Cora pulling starter Rick Porcello from a no-hitter after two innings and sending out a sub for Betts so he could get a curtain call.

Yankees: RF Aaron Judge, whose eighth-inning homer Friday night tied the Yankees with the Mariners' record, was out of the lineup after hitting the right-field wall while making a catch. But none of the top 10 home run-hitting teams has won the World Series.
