Sanchez's 20th homer ties 86-year-old mark Gary Sanchez's remarkable march through the history books continued in the Yankees' 6-4 win over the Red Sox on Tuesday, as the rookie launched his 20th home run in his 51st career game to equal an 86-year-old Major League record. Austin breaks out with 3-for-3 night vs. Red Sox Gary Sanchez aside, it hasn't been easy going for the other Baby Bombers since their August debuts, but in the Yankees' series opener against the Red Sox at Yankee Stadium on Tuesday, Tyler Austin came through.

Tanaka wants to make one final start Masahiro Tanaka says that he wants to make his final start of the regular season, tentatively scheduled for Saturday against the Orioles, even if the Yankees have been eliminated from postseason contention by then. With 5-run 9th, Yankees stun Jays In a game marred by two early benches-clearing incidents, the Yankees scored five runs in the ninth inning -- three coming on homers by Mark Teixeira and Aaron Hicks -- and defeated the Blue Jays, 7-5, on Monday night at Rogers Centre to win the finale of the four-game series. Tex punctuates last road HR with first bat flip If Monday's game at Rogers Centre was Mark Teixeira's final road contest, it certainly was one for the memory books. Yanks, Blue Jays clear benches twice A trio of hit-by-pitches led to the Blue Jays and Yankees clearing their benches twice early in Monday's 7-5 Yankees win at Rogers Centre. David Ortiz wrote a letter to Yankees fans David Ortiz wrote a letter to Yankees fans Yankees' Wild Card hopes take hit in Toronto The Blue Jays bolstered their own pursuit of a postseason spot, while dealing the Yankees another blow in their hunt for an American League Wild Card berth, in a walk-off 4-3 win on Sunday at Rogers Centre. Betances, Clippard can't seal deal vs. Jays Even when things look like they're about to go right for the Yankees, they haven't been ending that way. Family, friends celebrate Yogi at NJ museum Yogi Berra was as beloved in Montclair, N.J., as he was in the Bronx. Berra and his wife, Carmen Berra, moved their family to the hilly suburb in 1959, eight World Series titles and three Most Valuable Player Awards already under his belt. Berra spent nearly the next six decades there, raising his family, mentoring kids at summer camp and greeting trick-or-treaters at the door on Halloween. Girardi: CC 'pitched really well' vs. Jays With the Yankees looking to improve their standing in the American League Wild Card race, CC Sabathia gave his club everything it could ask for, and more, throwing seven sparkling innings of four-hit shutout ball to keep a sold-out Rogers Centre crowd as quiet as possible in the Yankees' 3-0 loss to the Blue Jays on Saturday. No support for CC; Yanks miss WC opportunity The Blue Jays widened their lead for the top spot in the American League Wild Card race as Jose Bautista's three-run home run in the eighth inning broke a scoreles tie in Toronto's 3-0 win over the Yankees on Saturday at Rogers Centre. Jeter pays surprise visit to kids at NYC Baseball Clinic Former New York Yankees shortstop Derek Jeter returned to the field at the Al Oerter Recreation Center in Queens on Saturday morning to the utter delight of 100 children from all five boroughs of New York. Yanks' September swoon due to struggling bats The Yankees have been one of the Cinderella stories in the season's second half, but a costly September slide has been headlined by a scuffling offense, which struggled again on Friday evening at Rogers Centre. Yanks fall 4 back of Wild Card spot with loss After Francisco Liriano's six shutout innings preserved a narrow lead, the Blue Jays' previously struggling offense erupted for four runs in the seventh and two more in the eighth en route to a 9-0 win over the Yankees on Friday night at Rogers Centre. Yankees know they must win '11 out of 10' The Yanks had a few laughs as newcomers like Gary Sanchez, Tyler Austin and Luis Cessa curiously eyed the onesies they would be wearing through Canadian customs. Thursday's 2-0 loss to the Rays removed some of the fun, but a loose attitude can only help in the face of what manager Joe Girardi called "the biggest series of the year." Lost chances at Trop stunt Yanks' progress Blake Snell hurled five effective innings and Corey Dickerson homered, helping the Rays put another dent in the Yankees' postseason hopes with a 2-0 victory on Thursday night at Tropicana Field. Brad Miller drove in the game's first run to help Tampa Bay take the finale of this three-game series with New York, which opened the day 2 1/2 games back -- with four teams to jump -- in the chase for the second American League Wild Card spot. Yanks trade veteran reliever Coke to Pirates The Yankees completed a Minor League deal on Thursday, trading veteran left-hander Phil Coke to the Pirates for cash considerations. Yanks gain in WC as Sanchez swats 2 HRs Gary Sanchez continued a sensational and historic start to his Major League career on Wednesday, homering twice and driving in five runs to lead the Yankees to an 11-5 victory over the Rays at Tropicana Field. Sanchez keeping Yankees' playoff hopes alive The Yankees limped out of Fenway Park late Sunday night, stunned in four games by the streaking Red Sox, and with three of their key players hurt. Preparation was key to Mo's success Even now, three years after his retirement from baseball, it's hard not to think of Mariano Rivera, both in New York and around the Major Leagues. Sanchez fastest to 19 career HRs: 45 games For the second time in as many nights, the Rays opted to pitch to Gary Sanchez with first base open. The Yankees' rookie sensation responded with the same result: a long three-run homer. Butler fitting in with Yanks, open to '17 return The thought of sitting out for the rest of the year crossed Billy Butler's mind as the highway miles rolled past last week, traveling to his in-law's home in Idaho Falls, Idaho. Without regular at-bats under his belt, the 10-year veteran was not sure if he was ready to help a team. 8 insane facts to put Sanchez's start in perspective 8 insane facts to put Sanchez's start in perspective Torre: Baseball after 9/11 had added purpose Joe Torre remembers that morning as vividly as every other American. He was manager of the Yankees, and his club had been rained out the day before. NY Mets Yo, Bruce homer to back Thor in WC hunt It will take weeks, months, even years for the Marlins to recover from the death of Jose Fernandez. In some ways, they never will. But they at least attempted to restore a sense of normalcy on Tuesday night at Marlins Park, where the Mets scored a 12-1 victory in a game bursting with National League Wild Card implications. Matz to have bone spur surgery; season over Mets left-handed starter Steven Matz will undergo season-ending surgery next week at the Hospital for Special Surgery in New York to remove a bone spur from his left elbow, the team announced before Tuesday's game against the Marlins. Thor ready to strike hammer in big game after tune-up When Noah Syndergaard next climbs atop a Major League mound, there is a good chance he will be starting the Mets' most important game of the season. Either the Mets will need Syndergaard to pitch them into the postseason this Sunday in Philadelphia, or they will need him to win the National League Wild Card game. Duda playing way back into everyday role When Lucas Duda returned to the Mets this September following a four-month absence, there was a chance he would not be of much use to them. There was a chance Duda's timing at the plate would never reemerge, considering his complete lack of rehab at-bats against even Minor League pitching. Tiebreaker scenarios for Wild Card berths For all the numbers of notoriety in the increasingly data-driven sport of baseball, the one still paramount in the 162-game schedule is winning percentage. But what happens when even that supreme stat can't decide things? Flores unlikely to return this season Continued pain in Wilmer Flores' right wrist should spell the end of the infielder's season. Flores attempted to swing a bat on Monday, but he was forced to stop due to wrist pain. The Mets subsequently shut him down from all baseball activity through Thursday's off-day, essentially ending his regular season. Lugo starts as Mets try to maintain WC edge The 19th and final meeting between the Mets and Marlins will also mark the final home game for Miami in 2016. For the first time since Marlins Park opened in 2012, meaningful games were played in Miami deep into September. Mets sign Fernandez jersey to honor Marlins ace As they entered their clubhouse on Tuesday afternoon, Mets players walked by the Jose Fernandez jersey that hung in their dugout the previous two games. One by one, they signed the 1986 throwback Mets jersey, which they planned to present to the Marlins as a gift. On night to reflect, Mets out of sync from start MIAMI -- Jose Fernandez's presence was everywhere on Monday night, and collectively, the Marlins fed off the energy. Dee Gordon set the tone, honoring his friend and teammate by taking a pitch in the right-handed batter's box before turning around to his natural left-handed side and hitting a tearful leadoff homer that tugged at the heartstrings of everyone at Marlins Park.
