The Yankees broke the single-season home run record during their 8-5 win over the Red Sox in Boston on Saturday. >> Box score
1. Gleyber Torres' two-run homer into the Red Sox bullpen in the top of the fourth inning set an MLB record for homers in a season (265). Giancarlo Stanton, who reached 100 RBI, then went deep in the seventh to left to push it to No. 266.
2. Miguel Andujar hit his 45th double to set a Yankee rookie record. Joe DiMaggio had 44 in 1936.
3. The Yankees, with their eyes on the Wild Card Game, used seven pitchers to get through the victory, with Domingo German starting in place of Lance Lynn. The righthander went 1.1 innings, allowing three hits and an earned run, while striking out three and walking one batter.
The Yankees busted some records this afternoon on their way to their first 100-win season since 2009.
The Yankees broke the single season home run record for a club and became the first team in MLB history to receive at least 20 home runs from each spot in the batting order. Finally, Miguel Andujar set the Yankees' record for doubles in a season by a rookie with his 45th two-bagger in 2018, which was formerly held by Hall of Famer Joe DiMaggio.
The Yankees are blistering the baseball of late, scoring 47 runs in their last five games, which must make them feel good as they head to the Wild Card Game. It's unfortunate that the Yankees will have a two-day layoff, because if asked, some of the players might want to keep getting into the batter's box to maintain their hot streak.
Count Giancarlo Stanton among the hot batters as he launched his 38th home run and recorded his 100th RBI of the season. Stanton has three doubles and three homers in his last six games. One season after winning the NL MVP award with extraordinary power stats, Stanton had a tough task ahead of him - new team, new league and new positions - and he's managed a fine overall season as he prepares to play in his first postseason.
