Aaron Hicks became the third Yankees player in history with a three-homer game against the Red Sox on Sunday night as the Yankees blasted six home runs to set a franchise record with 137 before the All-Star break.
Entering the series finale, the Yankees trailed their record of most home runs by the All-Star break set in 2002 and tied in ’12 by just three. Aaron Judge, Gleyber Torres and Kyle Higashioka joined Hicks in the long-ball party as the Yankees rolled to an 11-1 victory and a first-place tie with the Red Sox at the official halfway point in the season.
Judge started the slugfest in the first when he paid a visit to Monument Park, launching his 22nd home run of the year — and fourth against the Red Sox this season — a Statcast™ -projected 409 feet on a 93.8-mph fastball from left-hander David Price.
