CLEVELAND, Ohio (AP) – Giancarlo Stanton busted out of his slump with two rocketed home runs – one with the highest exit velocity this season at 118 mph – and the New York Yankees connected four times in a 5-3 win over the Cleveland Indians.
Stanton hit a 429-foot solo shot that registered 118 mph off his bat in the third inning against Logan Allen, and another in the fifth.
It was the slugger’s first multi-homer game since Sept. 27, 2018. After a horrendous start, the Yankees have won three of four.
Rougned Odor added a two-run homer and Aaron Hicks had a solo shot for New York.
