ESPN: Gary Sanchez Is Having Maybe The All-Time Best Start


Sanchez hit two more home runs and drove in five in Wednesday’s 11-5 win over the Tampa Bay Rays. He is the fastest baseball player in history to record 19 homers; it has taken him just 45 games. The Boston Braves’ Wally Berger belted 19 homers in 51 games back in 1930. No one had hit them at a quicker rate until Sanchez arrived for good on Aug. 3.

“I never thought it was going to be like this,” Sanchez said.

Sanchez has hit homers in four consecutive games. Wednesday was his third multi-homer game. He also added a first-inning RBI single. Plus, he caught the whole game, taking a back swing off his elbow in the ninth, causing trainer Steve Donohue and Girardi to rush out. Girardi, fortunately, didn’t pass out at the sight. Sanchez stayed in.

Can’t wait for the kid to get a few more games under his belt and really hit his stride.
