Jets DE Muhammad Wilkerson said his injured shoulder is "no concern at all."

The Yankees beat the Twins, 11-3, to sweep their three-game series. But the immediate concern was a toddler being hit by a foul ball. The young girl was taken to a nearby hospital.

After walking Giancarlo Stanton four times on Tuesday, the Mets pitched to him today and the big guy swatted his 56th home run. With 10 games remaining, can Stanton get to 60? Based on his season rate of home runs, he'd hit 3.75 in the Marlins' remaining 10 games. Meanwhile, Aaron Judge slammed his 45th home run as he closes in on Mark McGwire's rookie record of 49 set in 1987. That's eight HR, 19 RBI and 20 runs in September for Judge as he re-ignites his MVP case.

Odell Beckham (ankle), Evan Engram (concussion) and LB Keenan Robinson (concussion) listed as limited practice. Engram entered into protocol as "precaution."

Judge and Sanchez hit back-to-back homers (0:38)

Andrew Marchand ESPN Senior Writer 

Aaron Judge seems like he is back. Judge hit an opposite field two-run homer off the Twins' Bartolo Colon that just sneaked inside the right field foul pole. It gave him 45 homers and 100 RBIs. A moment later, Gary Sanchez went deep to tie the game. Sanchez has 32 homers and he missed the first month of the season.

New Jets CEO Christopher Johnson spoke to the media for the first time since taking over the team from his older brother, Woody, the new U.S. ambassador to the U.K. Biggest takeaways: Johnson said he doesn't consult with Woody on any football matters. He said he will decide the fates of coach Todd Bowles and GM Mike Maccagnan. He said, "We definitely are not tanking." Johnson is excited about the future, yet realistic about the present. He struck the right balance. It was an impressive media debut.

ESPN Stats & Info

Can the Twins hold off the Angels?

The Yankees are all but locked into a wild-card spot, while the Twins have a significant advantage over the Angels despite losing four of five. The Rangers' two-game win streak is probably too little, too late, while losing streaks by the Mariners (four games) and Royals (three) have just about sunk them.
