Yankees set HR record, beat Red Sox 8-5 for 100th win

MLB Game Two Baltimore Orioles at Boston Red Sox

NY clinches home field in wild-card game with series-opening victory. This doesn't do anything extra for the Bronx Bombers, of course.

Nick Cafardo echoed that sentiment earlier this week, arguing the that Sox-Yankees would be more compelling than if they played the Oakland A's.

It's sure to be a kinetic, breakneck affair under the lights at Yankee Stadium next week. Thanks to their 107-plus wins, the Red Sox have easily locked up home field advantage throughout the entire month of October. Khrush Davis and Matt Chapman matching dingers with the team that just tied the all-time single-season record for long balls?

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. When I got the job that's something that I learned from them, from the Astros. That followed a poor stretch, where he went 0-2 with a 9.16 ERA in four starts.

NY homered four times Friday night in an 11-6 win over the Red Sox, which evened the Yankees with the 1997 Mariners ' total set by a lineup that included Ken Griffey Jr., Alex Rodriguez, Jay Buhner and Edgar Martinez.

"That's an exhale right there, for the moment", NY manager Aaron Boone said. 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.

Giancarlo Stanton hit the New York Yankees' 266th home run of the season on Saturday - extending a Major League Baseball record - with a drive to left field, then got a surprise.

Cessa (1-4) got just one out, allowing four runs - three earned - on five hits. But by his own home run ball?

"I just told him what I saw a year ago", Cora said, as transcribed by the Boston Herald.

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 gave a quick salute to the man.

Red Sox security removed Lastrapes from the game, but that's a small price to pay for legend status. With one out and runners on second and third, Eduardo Nunez hit one to the right side, beyond the pitcher's reach.

Yankees: New York finished 100-62, its 20th 100-win season and a nine-game improvement over past year.

The Red Sox took it slow with Sale upon his latest return from the disabled list, and the southpaw struggled a bit with his mechanics while also suffering a noticeable dip in his velocity. Andujar hit his 47th double, tied for second-most for a rookie in major league history.

Red Sox: RHP Rick Porcello (17-7, 4.33 ERA) is expected to throw a couple innings in the regular-season finale as Boston rests its rotation for the ALDS.
