Giancarlo Stanton’s bat has come alive at the right time for the New York Yankees.
After another season riddled by injuries, the $325 million man has already hit five home runs just four games into the postseason.
In Game 1 of the ALDS, Stanton capped a Yankees’ 9-3 win with a ninth-inning grand slam. Despite their 7-5 loss Game 2, Stanton stayed red hot by a pair of home runs against Tampa Bay Rays starter Tyler Glasnow. That includes this 458-foot missile in the fourth inning.
The three-run blast cut the Rays leads down to 5-4. In doing so, Stanton is now the first player in MLB history to have his first five hits in a postseason all be home runs. Earlier, Stanton hit a solo home run in the first inning.
