Only one Yankee in their team history has had a multi-HR game at a younger age than Gleyber Torres.
That would be Mickey Mantle. Nice company.
The Yanks improved to 31-13 (22-4 in their last 26 games) by beating Texas, 10-5, on Monday night.
They hit 5 more HR tonight.
In the second, Sanchez got a bloop single, and with one out moved up to second on a groundout. Walker doubled in one run and Gleyber Torres hit his first of two HR on the game to make it 3-0.
Masahiro Tanaka gave up a HR in the bottom of the second, 3-1 Yanks.
In the fourth, Walker hit his first HR of the year to make it 4-1 Yanks, but Tanaka gave up a 3-run HR in the bottom of the fourth that tied the game.
Aaron Judge hit HR #12 in the fifth to put the Yanks up for good, 5-4.
To the sixth, and with one out, Torres hits his second HR of the game (6) to make it 6-4 Yanks. In so doing, he becomes the second youngest Yankee ever to hit 2 HR in a game, and the only one younger is Mickey Mantle.
Gardner then walked and Judge doubled him to third. Stanton hit a SF to make it 7-4. Didi doubled in a run to make it 8-4 Yanks.
