Just a little opening, and the Yankees pounced

Marwin Gonzalez, Gleyber Torres, and DJ LeMahieu each walk against toughest relievers just before the big swings in New York’s seven-run eighth inning.

Giancarlo Stanton homered twice and a career-high six runs and New York get their 4th straight win.

The league-leading Yankees also got hits from Aaron Judge and Josh Donaldson in the first game of an eight-game trip. Judge had 4 RBI, and Donaldson had 3.

New York managed to win 16th times in 18 games. Stanton off to the best start for the franchise since the Yankees went 23-8 in 2003.

In the seventh inning, Yoán Moncada hit his first home run of the season, a three-run shot against Jonathan Loáisiga (1-1).

It didn’t really matter.

After Joe Kelly (0-1) struck out the first 2 batters of the eighth inning, New York put their best scoring inning of the season.

Three consecutive walks loaded the bases for Judge. Torres brushed off third-base for a 9-7 lead.

Boone brought Torres up to bat for Kyle Higashioka. He trailed 0-2 before drawing a seven-pitch walk.

Stanton followed with 2 single, and Donaldson with 3 home run to left off Tanner Banks.

Stanton also hit 2 homers, his first of the season and 35th of his career. It was his second match with two opposite-field shots.

Judge’s 11th homer, which came leading off the seventh inning, traveled an approximate 456 feet to left center.

Rookie Luis Gil allowed 4 runs and 5 hits in four innings, which played a doubleheader against Texas on Sunday.
