For Aaron Judge it was one of extended failure. Denard Span, whose single in that inning led to a run, homered earlier in the game and finished 3-for-4 with three runs and two RBIs. This will be the 14th consecutive season the Marlins have missed the postseason, and given their injury-ravaged pitching staff, Stanton harbors no illusions of a miracle run. The new record was set after just 117 games of the regular season.
It was Washington's first day since slugger Bryce Harper got hurt Saturday when he slipped on first base. After all, he's still just 27 years old. His OBP in 2017 now stands at.448 and a lot of that has to do with his last 20 games.
It was the fifth straight game in which Stanton homered, setting another club record. The Giants took a step back in their quest following an 8-3 defeat at the Miami Marlins for their third loss in four contests where neither the arms or bats came through.
This is going to sound repetitive, but Giancarlo Stanton hit ANOTHER home run during Tuesday's Giants-Marlins game. Barry Bonds hit 24 over 32 games from May 17 to June 23, 2001 en route to breaking the single-season homer record, but it's hard to find many other stretches in which a player has hit more homers in fewer games.
1998 changed everything when McGwire and Sosa raced to break Maris' record, finishing the season with 70 and 66 home runs respectively, and McGwire would reach the 60-homer plateau once more while Sosa did so twice.
People are turning IKEA rugs into Game of Thrones cloaks
I want the audience to nearly smell the costumes. "Here they were waxed and frosted so they belonged to the landscape". Game of Thrones returns for a seven-episode seventh season on July 16.
Rookie Rafael Devers hit two homers for the Red Sox, giving him five in 16 games since making his major league debut on July 25. Only six players in Major League Baseball history have longer such streaks.
While Votto and Stanton want to do all they can right now to keep their streaks going, Judge is doing everything he can to end his. Pirela, Austin Hedges and Carlos Asuaje each had two hits, and Hedges also drove in two runs.
Giancarlo Stanton hit his 43rd home run of the 2017 season on Monday.
San Francisco had taken a 2-1 lead in the third, but Stanton knotted the score with his homer off of Giants ace Madison Bumgarner in the bottom of the inning. He also had an RBI single.
