ESPN Stats and Information  

Mark Teixeira became the first Yankees player to hit a walk-off grand slam against the Red Sox since Charlie Keller in 1942. It was Teixeira's first career regular season walk-off HR (he hit one in the 2009 ALDS). He had the most of anyone who didn't have a walk-off HR (he entered with 408). The new leader in that stat is ex-Tigers slugger, Norm Cash (377)

Didi Gregorius quietly makes history

Gregorius hit his 20th home run of the season on Tuesday. He's the third player born in Europe (Amsterdam) to have a 20-homer season in the major leagues, per the Elias Sports Bureau. The others to do that were Bobby Thomson (born in Glasgow), who had eight 20-homer seasons, and Mike Blowers (West Germany), who did it once.

Sox seeking first Yankee Stadium clinch

With the Red Sox a win away from clinching the AL East, the Elias Sports Bureau notes that they have never locked up a postseason berth with a win at Yankee Stadium. They did clinch the AL pennant in 1904 at Hilltop Park, the then-home of the Yankees, however.

Gary Sanchez joins Yankees' 20-HR club

Sanchez became the third current Yankee to hit 20 homers this season on Tuesday, but it took him considerably less time to get there (49 games). Starlin Castro (21 HRs in 148 games) and Didi Gregorius (20 HRs in 149 games) are the other two.

Austin sure knows when to hit them out

Like his first three homers, No. 4 of Tyler Austin's career was a go-ahead shot for the Yankees off David Price on Tuesday. The blast traveled just 347 feet to right field, per ESPN's Home Run Tracker.

When David Ortiz strolled to the plate, representing the go-ahead run with two outs in the ninth, Yankees manager Joe Girardi thought, "I was like, 'What are the chances he is coming up in this situation. It is kind of the way fate had it tonight." Ortiz struck out against Tyler Clippard to end the game, preventing the Red Sox from clinching the AL East.
