Sanchez slugs way to rare Yankees feat

Gary Sanchez hit two home runs, his 24th and 25th of the season, in the Yankees' win over the Tigers on Tuesday. He's the first player to hit 25 homers for the Yankees in a season before turning 25 years old since Don Mattingly blasted 35 home runs as a 24-year-old in 1985. (Elias Sports Bureau)

Stats & Info

Tuesday's longest home runs

Gary Sanchez outpaced the competition by nearly 40 feet, as his 493-foot blast -- his first of two homers on the day -- slots in behind Aaron Judge's 495-footer for the longest home runs this season. Yangervis Solarte's 455-footer highlights a career-high six-RBI night, while the homers by Nick Williams and Marcell Ozuna were only two of 14 hit by the Phillies and Marlins between both ends of their doubleheader.

ESPN Stats and Information  

Yankees rightfielder Aaron Judge snapped his strikeout streak at 37 consecutive games, going 1-for-1 with 3 walks in a win over the Tigers. Judge and Bill Stoneman (a pitcher for the 1971-72 Expos) share the mark for longest such streak all-time, Judge still remains on pace to crush Curtis Granderson's franchise record for strikeouts in a season.

Sanchez homers twice, Tanaka sharp as Yanks rout Tigers 13-4

Gary Sanchez hit two home runs -- including one estimated at nearly 500 feet -- and Masahiro Tanaka pitched seven tidy innings in his return from the disabled list to lead the New York Yankees to a 13-4 victory over the Detroit Tigers on Tuesday.

Andrew Marchand ESPN Senior Writer 

Masahiro Tanaka was pretty good in his return from the DL. Tanaka, who had inflammation in his shoulder, went seven innings, allowing three runs on six hits. He struck out four and walked none. He was given a seven-run lead before the bottom of the third.

ESPN Stats and Information  

Gary Sánchez hit a 493-foot home run against the Tigers tonight. That's 2 feet shy of the longest HR in the majors this season, a 495-foot shot hit by his Yankees teammate, Aaron Judge on June 11 against the Orioles.

Andrew Marchand ESPN Senior Writer 

The streak is over. Aaron Judge's strikeout streak has come to an end. Judge had K'd in a major league record 37 games, but didn't on Tuesday night. He went 1-for-1 with three walks before being lifted as the Yanks were blowing out the Tigers.

Andrew Marchand ESPN Senior Writer 

The Yankees' Gary Sanchez's first inning two-run shot was the second longest in baseball this year, according to StatCast. Sanchez' shot went 493-feet. Aaron Judge hit one earlier in the season that was estimated at 495-feet.

Andrew Marchand ESPN Senior Writer 

Like all MLB teams, the Yankees will wear alternative jerseys this weekend, meaning they will have names on their backs and no pinstripes. Commissioner Rob Manfred, who grew up a Yankee fan, said, "Modern civilization is going to probably survive."

Andrew Marchand ESPN Senior Writer 

Masahiro Tanaka is not only trying to help pitch the Yankees into the playoffs, he is trying to make his opt-out decision difficult. Tanaka will start tonight after the Yankees took him off the DL following his recovery from inflammation in his right shoulder. At the end of the season, he can opt out of the final three years and $68 million of his contract. Right now, it is hard to see him doing that with an 8-10 record and a 4.92 ERA.
