Heads Up! Strong-armed fan hits Yanks' Giancarlo Stanton with HR ball

Heads Up! Strong-armed fan hits Yanks' Giancarlo Stanton with HR ball

But by his own home run ball?

The New York Yankees set a new Major League Baseball record for most home runs as a team in a single season Saturday at Fenway Park, as Gleyber Torres and Giancarlo Stanton mashed long balls to power New York to an 8-5 win.

The Yankees' Giancarlo Stanton looks towards the Green Monster after a fan threw his home run ball back onto the field, striking him during the seventh inning of Saturday's game against the Red Sox.

"We talked about it once we started getting closer", right fielder Aaron Judge said Friday night, just after the Yankees tied the Mariners' 21-year mark.

NY became the first team to get at least 20 home runs from all nine spots in the batting order. The 1997 Mariners sported Hall-of-Famer Ken Griffey Jr.as well as career-.312 hitter Edgar Martinez and five-time home run champion Alex Rodriguez.

"That was cool for me", Stanton said.

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.

"We're going to be 0-0 next week". "The fact that I' m able to give him a day [off] says a lot about where he's at and where I feel he's at from an at-bat standpoint". Stanton then got quite a surprise from a strong-armed fan while rounding second base at Fenway Park. "I could see us having a pretty strong plan in place how we plan on rolling out, what matchups we like best against their lineup". Boone said the Yankees were being cautious with Judge, who returned from the disabled list September 14 with a wrist fracture. "I think it's fine on both sides".

Yankees: All-Star RHP Luis Severino (19-8, 3.39 ERA) had been listed to start Sunday, but was scratched. Should the Cardinals and Dodgers tie for the second wild card slot, they'll play a tie-breaker in St. Louis to determine which team will face off against the no. 1 wild card holder... which might be the Brewers or the Cubs, depending on how the rest of the weekend shakes out.
