NEW YORK — Back in the confines of Yankee Stadium, the Bombers continued a recent hot streak as they hit five home runs in a 7-3 win over the Texas Rangers.

Giancarlo Stanton then joined the party with a long solo shot in the bottom half of the frame, off of Ariel Jurado. With an exit velocity of 121.7 mph, it was the hardest hit home run ever in the Statcast era.
To finish things off, Walker hit another homer in the sixth, this time from the right side, as he accomplished the feat for the first time in his career.
The Cuban would then make things interesting after walking the first two batters he faced. He, however, would bounce back to get the next three batters out and conserve the New York victory.
