Yankees: Giancarlo Stanton hit with his own home run ball

"Simply stated, the New England sports world is a better place if the Red Sox are playing the vaunted Bronx Bombers in the American League Division one week from today".

It's sure to be a kinetic, breakneck affair under the lights at Yankee Stadium next week. Voit entered Saturday tied with Milwaukee's Christian Yelich for the most homers hit in baseball within that span. Khrush Davis and Matt Chapman matching dingers with the team that just tied the all-time single-season record for long balls? It came after Gary Sanchez, Hicks and Luke Voit all went deep earlier in the game.

And the Yankee faithful can now breathe a sigh of relief that they won't have to fly across the country for this epic one-and-done affair.

"If he's not your MVP, I don't know who is", said Martinez, who will also be in the running, along with Mike Trout, Jose Ramirez and Alex Bregman.

Stanton's solo homer, the Yankees' 266th of the season, gave him his 100th RBI of the season.

The Yankees' 265th homer moved them ahead of the 1997 Seattle Mariners, whom NY had tied with four homers on Friday. "They work really hard at their craft, and it's a result of a lot of people having success", manager Aaron Boone said. The Yankees topped them on Saturday.

Andujar drove in two runs on a double duing New York's three-run fifth and Stanton led off the seventh with his 38th homer, a shot off Steven Wright. According to ESPN's Coley Harvey, the team has now registered at least 20 homers from each spot in the batting order - and, more importantly, they've outpaced the 1997 Mariners, who had gone undefeated for 21 years after putting up 264 home runs prior to their run at the ALDS. Red Sox: 4-6, .273 batting average, 5.38 ERA, outscored opponents by three runs.


After Greg Bird's RBI double put NY up 2-1 in the fourth, Torres hit a 1-1 pitch from Rodriguez out to right, sailing over the head of Blake Swihart at the bullpen wall and giving the Yankees the record-breaking 265th homer.

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

This is why I don't like Red Sox fans.

Sabathia earned a five-game suspension at the start of next season and received an undisclosed fine for intentionally plunking Rays catcher Jesus Sucre in the bottom of the sixth, after warnings had been issued.

The home run record wasn't the only one to fall.

Miguel Andujar also set a club record with his 45th double, the most by a NY rookie since Joe DiMaggio set the previous mark with 44 in 1936.

Instead, the Yankees will sleep in their own beds, and play in the park where they were 53-28 while hitting 144 home runs. The right-hander has faced his former team twice since joining the Red Sox, throwing 14 shutout innings as part of going 6-7 with a 3.88 ERA this season with Tampa Bay and Boston.
