Yankees break 1997 Mariners record for most homers in a season

His 27 home runs are two shy of tying DiMaggio for second-most all-time among Yankees rookies (Aaron Judge's 52 past year are the record), and if he were to tie DiMaggio on Sunday, he would do so with the Yankees' 25th individual multi-homer game of the season. Majority are tasteless and show little to no class. Yankees star Giancarlo Stanton homered in Saturday's 8-5 win against the Red Sox. "But we're going to feel good with whoever's out there".

Stanton pushed the record to 266 in the seventh with his 38th homer, a solo homer to left field. He's batting.667 with 12 hits and three home runs for Boston over the past seven days.

Either the Yankees or Oakland A's will be back at Fenway next Friday, and Eovaldi would be starting on the road in a Game 4 - or perhaps even Game 3. "I just think it would be a shame if they don't go farther because you know how this (regular-season) stuff gets forgotten". His 13 homers since being traded to the Yankees on July 29 are tied for the most in baseball in that span with Milwaukee's Christian Yelich.

"It's not a huge adjustment", Cora said.

After victories in 17 of their first 19 games, the Red Sox led the division for all but a couple of weeks and never lost more than three in a row while breaking the 106-year-old franchise record with 108 victories. They have a nice assortment of players with great character and a lot to prove because they don't get much press. J.A. Happ got the win for NY, his 17th on the season.

When Aaron Judge returned to the Yankees dugout on Friday night after hitting the team's 264th home run of the season, equipment manager Rob Cucuzza stood up in the visitor's dugout at Fenway Park and began signaling for someone to get the attention of a member of the home team who could retrieve that ball for them. The A's were the next closest with 11 four-homer games.

Giancarlo Stanton has been plunked plenty of times. "They work really hard at their craft, and it's a result of a lot of people having success", manager Aaron Boone said. Most postseason starters see their pitch counts reduced due to the high intensity of the games. Last year, the Yankees rallied from a 3-0 first-inning deficit to beat the Minnesota Twins and advance to the ALDS.

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.

The guy didn't just toss it onto the left field warning track, though. He is the first player in baseball history to lead the majors in batting average and also top 30 steals and 30 homers.

Up in the air: Cora said he would decide the final pitching spot for the postseason roster on Thursday after the Yankees play Oakland the day before in the wild card game.
