Yankees set single-season Major League Baseball home run record

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 New York Yankees star homered over the Green Monster during Saturday's 8-5 win, connecting in the seventh inning against the Boston Red Sox.

Do the Red Sox really need to play the Yankees in another meaningless game on Sunday?

They got Didi Gregorius, feared lost for the season after suffering a wrist injury a week ago, back in the lineup Friday night, along with Aaron Hicks, who returned after missing three games in St. Petersburg and hit a three-run homer Friday night.

Brock Holt hit a two-run homer in the ninth for the Red Sox, who could be hosting the Yankees in the AL Division Series starting week.

In the 7th, with the Yankees already up 7-2, Giancarlo Stanton made it 266.

Lynn is 1-1 with a 1.80 ERA in five career starts against Boston, and he is 1-0 with a 1.64 ERA against the Red Sox this season.

The most important thing that happened on Friday was not the record-tying home runs.

The Yankees have solidified home-field advantage in Wednesday's American League wild-card game against the Athletics.

Over his last two starts, Eovaldi has pitched 11 innings, allowing six hits and one run while striking out 15. He's batting.250 with six hits and three home runs in that span.

The Yankees have 99 wins, the third most in baseball, trailing only Boston and Houston.

Arizona also put first baseman-outfielder Christian Walker (facial fractures) on the 60-day disabled list. "We're still going to have four days off", Cora said. New York's lineup has 206 home runs this year, led by Giancarlo Stanton's mark of 38.

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

Red Sox: Nunez remained in the game after a bit of a collision with Cessa on his first-inning infield single but remained in the game until he was pinch run for after a sixth-inning walk.

Judge and his teammates locked themselves into hosting the wild-card game in powerful fashion Friday night, blasting four home runs for the second straight game.

Hitting mainly in the No. 5 spot, Xander Bogaerts turned into a consistent, clutch hitter throughout the season and showed a little more power. Boston's only other years not losing four in a row ended in championships, with the 1903 and 2013 teams defeating the Pirates and Cardinals, respectively. While the left-hander largely has been dominant this season, his recent starts have left Boston fans a bit anxious about the team's ace.
