Fan hits Yanks' Giancarlo Stanton with his own HR ball

Didi Gregorius and Aaron Hicks give Yankees critical playoff ingredient

Gleyber Torres and Giancarlo Stanton connected as the playoff-bound Yankees set the major league record for most home runs in a season, beating the Boston Red Sox 8-5 Saturday for their 100th win this year.

NY tied the record Friday night with four homers in an 11-6 win over the Red Sox. It was Torres' 24th home run of the season, which sailed over the head of Blake Swihart at the bullpen wall to put the Yankees up 4-1 against the Red Sox.

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.

As the ball landed in the Red Sox bullpen, Torres waved his right fist in the air and smiled at the Yankees dugout, a small commemoration of the occasion.

The Red Sox, who clinched the best record in baseball with a franchise-record 107 wins, were hoping to make things hard for their archrivals - and the A's, too - by forcing the victor of the wild-card game to fly cross-country next week. He and the friend who attended the game with him are not even Red Sox fans. It was Sanchez's 18th home run. We'll find that out Wednesday night after they're done duking it out in the AL Wild Card game. Walker, who batted.163 with three home runs and six RBIs in 37 games for Arizona this season, was hit in the face by a pitch from Los Angeles Dodgers right-hander Kenta Maeda on Monday.

"Honestly, I wasn't even aware of that until two seconds ago", Martinez said.

"Because if we win eight out of 10", Cora said, "people will say it doesn't count".

Stanton's solo homer, the Yankees' 266th of the season, gave him his 100th RBI and 38th home run of the season. Stanton gave a quick salute to the man.

Police reopen Ronaldo sexual assault investigation
A woman has accused Cristiano Ronaldo , one of the world's biggest soccer stars, of raping her in a Las Vegas hotel room in 2009. In the filing, she alleged that Juventus forward Cristiano Ronaldo forced himself on her while on holiday in Las Vegas , Nevada.

Red Sox: RF Mookie Betts was not in the lineup. So there's that for Sox fans to worry about as well.

"That's the idea when you're an opposing fan, but I don't think that's what he meant to do", Stanton said of the incident, via ESPN.

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

The 2009 champion Yankees hit 244 home runs in the regular season, which is tied for the 11th place.

Yankees: TBA. Boone said the Yankees would decide on a starter Saturday night as they plan ahead for the wild-card game.

In addition to the homer being an important personal achievement for Judge, it also helped the Yankees tie a record. 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.
