ST. PETERBURG, Fla. – As long as teams continue to pitch to Gary Sanchez, the Yankees should have a shot to get to the postseason.
Sanchez put the Yankees on his back once again Wednesday night, homering twice to lead them to an 11-5 win over the Rays at Tropicana Field.
The 23-year-old rookie homered for the fourth straight game, driving in five runs as he continued his assault on American League pitching.
“It’s hard to believe what this young man has done in a short period up here,” Joe Girardi said. “You just watch him and he continues to come up with big hit after big hit. It’s hard to believe. I haven’t seen anything like it.”
I’m starting to think this kid Sanchez has a chance to carve out a major league career.
