NYY Giancarlo Stanton becomes 4th player in MLB history to hit 400 homers in fewest games…3rd active player to do so

토토사이트He had an unparalleled home run pace despite his ‘glass body’ stigma. We’re talking about “original monster” slugger Giancarlo Stanton, 33, of the New York Yankees.

Stanton started in the No. 5 spot and went 1-for-4 with a home run and two RBIs against the Detroit Tigers in the 2023 Major League Baseball (MLB) World Series at Yankee Stadium in the Bronx, N.Y., on Saturday.

With the score tied 1-1 in the bottom of the sixth inning, Stanton took a low, three-seam slider from pitcher Jose Cisneros for a line drive over the left field fence for a two-run home run.

It was Stanton’s 22nd home run of the season. It was also his 400th career arch.

Stanton debuted with the Miami Marlins in 2010 and was expected to be a big hitter, hitting 22 home runs in his first season. In 2017, he led the National League (NL) in home runs with 59. Current Yankees slugger and then-rookie Aaron Judge hit 52 home runs in 2017.

After joining the Yankees the following year, Stanton formed a duo with Judge. Injuries limited him to just 19 games in 2019, and a torn left Achilles tendon limited him to 110 games in 2022. This season, he missed the entire month of May with a hamstring injury.

That’s the label Stanton has been labeled with: a body that doesn’t match his monster swing. But when it comes to home run production, he’s been phenomenal. With his homer against Detroit on June 6, Stanton became the first player in history to hit 400 homers in the fewest games (1520), according to MLB.com. Only Mark McQueary (1412 games), Babe Ruth (1475), and Alex Rodriguez (1489) are ahead of him.

Stanton also remains the 10th player in franchise history to surpass 400 home runs with the Yankees. Among active players, he is third behind Miguel Cabrera (Detroit – 510) and Nelson Cruz (464).

The Yankees won 5-1 with Stanton leading the offense. They won 69 games on the season. They are still in last place in the division (American League East), but closed the gap to 2.5 games after the fourth-place Boston Red Sox lost to the Tampa Bay Rays earlier in the day.
