4 homers in rout of Tampa pushes Yankees to 260 dingers in 2018

With four homers in a rout of the Rays at Tropicana Field, the Yankees reached 260 in 2018 and moved into a tie for second place for the single-season home run record. New York also won the season series over Tampa Bay, 10-9. Miguel Andujar, Luke Voit and Giancarlo Stanton (2) went deep, while Brett Gardner added an RBI triple and Aaron Judge plated two on sac flies.

Yanks starter CC Sabathia yielded just one hit over five frames, but he fell short of earning an innings-pitched incentive when he was ejected for hitting Rays catcher Jesus Sucre with a pitch. Tampa Bay starter Jaime Schultz lasted just two-thirds of an inning, and the Rays’ lone run came on a C.J. Cron homer.
