Giancarlo Stanton went 1-for-3 with a grand slam and a pair of walks in the Yankees' loss to the Red Sox on Thursday.
Advice: Stanton drilled an opposite-field grand slam off Red Sox reliever Heath Hembree to put the Yankees ahead in the fourth inning. It was his second grand slam of the season and 35th round-tripper in 150 games. Unfortunately, it wasn't enough to propel New York to a sweep of the three-game series as Boston responded with seven unanswered runs over the final five frames to clinch their third straight American League East crown. The 28-year-old slugger is hitting .262/.338/.497 with 94 runs scored, 35 homers, 93 RBI and five stolen bases in 668 plate appearances. He has a shot at eclipsing 40-homers for the second consecutive year with a strong finish over his final 10 games.
