Update from Danny Knobler as Gary Sanchez goes yard again: Now Gary Sanchez doesn't need to share his history with anyone else. The Yankees catcher homered again Saturday, and became the first major-league player ever with 11 home runs in the first 23 games of his career. Trevor Story (earlier this season) and George Scott (in 1966) each had 10. Sanchez's latest home run came in the fourth inning, on a 94 mph fastball from Orioles starter Dylan Bundy. It was the first of his 11 homers to come on a fastball harder than 91 mph, and it brought on the first curtain call of his Yankee career. The Yankee Stadium fans, who chanted his full name after his home run Friday night, called out just his first name Saturday, eventually bringing him to the top step of the dugout. Sanchez also threw out another runner trying to steal, his sixth in nine attempts.
