Yankees power past Red Sox and into record books


The New York Yankees set a record for home runs hit in a single Major League Baseball season on Saturday, Gleyber Torres delivering the record-breaking blast in the fourth inning against the Red Sox in Boston.

Torres’s two-run homer off Red Sox lefthanded hurler Eduardo Rodriguez was the Yankees’ 265th this season, eclipsing the previous record of 264 hit by the 1997 Seattle Mariners.
