New York Yankees rookie catcher Gary Sanchez just won’t stop as he yet again cranked a bomb that left the field of play in a hurry.
Back on August 10, Gary Sanchez hit his first career home run.
Now, on September 20, the same young phenom just ripped his 17th home run as a big leaguer. That’s stupid talented.
In the top of the seventh inning in game one of the New York Yankees‘ three-game set with the Tampa Bay Rays at the Trop, Sanchez broke a 2-2 tie by hitting the life out of a Brad Boxberger fastball.
The go-ahead three-run home run traveled 437 feet, with a 108.0 MPH exit velocity, and it threw New York in the ideal scenario to break their five-game losing skid.
Only two words can describe this 23-year old: my goodness.
GARY SANCHEZ WITH No. 17!
