  • Giancarlo Stanton went 1-for-4 with a double and two strikeouts in Saturday's loss to the Rays.
    Advice: The double was Stanton's 13th of the season, but this 4-0 loss was otherwise a dud for both team and player. The star slugger ended the contest striking out against Sergio Romo. He's hitting .249/.323/.491 with 18 home runs and 42 RBI through the first 73 games of his Yankees career. We're still waiting for a big hot streak from Stanton. To this point, it's been loud blasts here and there without much consistency.
  • Giancarlo Stanton went 2-for-4 and drilled a walk-off, two-run home run against the Mariners on Wednesday.

  • Giancarlo Stanton finished 4-for-5 with two RBI in the Yankees' win over the Nationals on Monday.

  • Giancarlo Stanton clobbered his 16th home run as the Yankees dispatched of the Rays 4-1 on Saturday afternoon at Yankee Stadium.
