J.A. Happ returned from the DL and gave the Yankees six strong innings. He gave up just three runs and four hits, with a Shin-Soo Choo two-run double in the fifth being the big blow for Texas.
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.
