Yankees Break Single-Season HR Record, Reach 100 Wins

Gleyber Torres homered in the fourth inning for the New York Yankees, claiming a Major League Baseball record with their 265th home run of the season.

"That's a lot of wins", said Martinez, who hit his 43rd homer, the most ever for a player in his first year with the Red Sox.

NY has to go through Oakland first, in Wednesday night's AL wild-card game. "But we're going to feel good with whoever's out there". "It's nice to finish that off".

Stanton pushed the homer record to 266 with a drive to left field, then got a surprise. The ALDS begins in Boston on Friday.

Right fielder Aaron Judge believes Yankees fans make having home-field advantage matter.

"In a lot of ways, we're built for our ballpark", Boone said. "But when push comes to shove you want to be at home".

The Yankees got the final say in the game, winning 8-5 and helping the team earn the title of most home runs in a single season. The Mariners had held the record since 1997. Overall, Haap is 17-6 with Toronto and NY this season. Staked to an 8-0 lead, he loaded the bases in the sixth for Steve Pearce's grand slam but got Rafael Devers on a groundout to end the inning. He allowed a hit, hit a batter and surrendered two runs. "From the last series we played in the regular season previous year, he took the first-pitch strike like 27 games in a row". 'I think it's fine on both sides'. New York's lineup has 206 home runs this year, led by Giancarlo Stanton's mark of 38.

Giancarlo Stanton has been plunked plenty of times.

Twelve players hit 10 or more homers and six topped 20. "We're going to the same guys, and it seemed like some of them hit the wall".

Seahawks unfazed by Earl Thomas' one-finger salute
Quarterback Russell Wilson said, "He's one of the greatest players to ever play the game, and he always will be". Or, in the case of Earl Thomas , they're paid not almost enough. 12s know that Dissly will be back next year.

So there was nothing at stake on Saturday when these two longtime rivals met, and NY earned its 100th victory for the 20th time in franchise history.

NY reached 100 wins for the 20th time in franchise history and first since going 103-59 in 2009, when the Yankees went on to win their most recent World Series title.

"That's the idea when you're an opposing fan, but I don't think that's what he meant to do", Stanton told ESPN's Coley Harvey after the game. "Got to Betances; got to Britton".

Cora said his team would have Monday off, and he planned to watch the NL tiebreakers and the wild-card games.

"That was cool for me", Stanton said.

Boston Red Sox relief pitcher Craig Kimbrel (46) reacts after allowing a run in the ninth inning against the Baltimore Orioles at Fenway Park. William Cuevas came out to start the fourth and gave up six runs on six hits and a walk while getting just one out.

Andujar still has time to tie DiMaggio in another category this year, too, and give the Yankees another record by doing so.

Second base umpire Andy Fletcher appeared to hurt his calf while calling Andujar safe on the play. Boston snapped a three-game losing streak but completed the season without losing four in a row.
