Gleyber Torres powered the New York Yankees to a victory on Friday and made history in the process.
New York were tied at 1-1 with the Los Angeles Angels when the 21-year-old second baseman stepped to the plate, in the bottom of the seventh inning. After working the count to 3-1, Torres sent a fastball from Angels reliever Jim Johnson over the right centre-field fence to give the Yankees the lead for good.
Torres became the youngest player in American League history to homer in four straight games with his seventh-inning blast.
Yankees starter Luis Severino pitched six shutout innings and struck out five batters. Chad Green, David Robertson and Aroldis Chapman combined for three scoreless in relief.
The Angels' lone run in the game came off a homer from Mike Trout in the fifth. He now has 16 home runs in 2018.
The Yankees move to 32-15 with the win while the Angels fall to 28-23.
MUSGROVE MUSCLES PAST ST LOUIS
Joe Musgrove allowed no runs and struck out seven in the Pittsburgh Pirates' 8-1 win over the St Louis Cardinals. It took him just 67 pitches to get through seven innings.
Chicago White Sox shortstop Tim Anderson went three for four with two RBIs and a run scored against the Detroit Tigers.
WITTGREN WHITTLES AWAY
Miami Marlins reliever Nick Wittgren surrendered three runs and failed to record an out against the Washington Nationals.
Meanwhile, reliever Oliver Drake allowed six earned runs in 2/3 of an inning in the Cleveland Indians' 11-2 loss to the Houston Astros.
JUDGE GOVERNS WITH THE GLOVE
Yankees outfielder Aaron Judge cut down a runner at the plate with a perfect throw home in the second inning.
Judge threw out a runner at second base later in the game.
