Expectations have been sky high for Giancarlo Stanton since he was acquired from Miami last offseason. In front of a sellout crowd Wednesday night at Yankee Stadium Authentic Nyheim Hines Jersey , the 6-foot-6 slugger had his first huge moment in pinstripes.

Stanton lined a two-run homer with two outs in the bottom of the ninth inning, and the New York Yankees erased a five-run deficit to beat the Seattle Mariners 7-5.

”That ball was absolutely scalded,” Yankees manager Aaron Boone said.

Gary Sanchez tied the score with a two-run homer in the eighth, and the Yankees went on to complete their largest comeback victory of the year.

Coming off an MVP season in which he led the majors with 59 home runs and 132 RBIs, Stanton has been inconsistent so far with New York, batting .255 with 18 homers.

The 28-year-old slugger has started to heat up lately, though, with four hits Monday night in Washington and a home run in Tuesday’s series opener against Seattle.

Didi Gregorius singled with two outs in the ninth and Stanton hammered an 0-2 breaking ball from reliever Ryan Cook (1-1). Stanton knew it was gone the moment he connected, and he took a little jump at the plate and pumped his arm before tossing his bat aside.

”When you hit a line drive, that’s a base hit to center for me,” Boone said. ”He’s a different animal.”

The laser shot traveled a projected 453 feet for Stanton’s first walk-off homer with the Yankees – his previous one came on April 18, 2014 Authentic P.K Subban Jersey , for the Marlins (also vs. Seattle). He was mobbed by teammates and doused as he crossed the plate, throwing his helmet into the air and smiling from ear to ear.

”I was trying to decide whether I was going to bowl it or throw it up,” Stanton said, acknowledging the homer was his biggest hit for the Yankees. ”I’m part of it now.”

New York is a season-high 27 games above .500 with the majors’ best record at 49-22. The Yankees have won nine of their last 11 against Seattle (46-28) and will try for a three-game sweep Thursday afternoon.

”They’re dangerous,” Mariners manager Scott Servais said. ”They made us pay tonight.”

Aroldis Chapman (3-0) pitched a perfect inning for the win. His final pitch was clocked at 104.3 mph, his fastest this season.

The Mariners have lost three straight for the first time since April 17-19 against the World Series champion Astros.

Seattle starter Felix Hernandez lasted five innings and threw 95 pitches. He was charged with two runs, one earned, and six hits.

Sanchez drove Alex Colome’s cutter 439 feet off the back wall of the left-center bullpen, knotting the score at 5.

”Excited for two of our big boys to really deliver in a big way tonight,” Boone said.

Dee Gordon had two RBIs for the Mariners. Denard Span and Ryon Healy each drove home a run in the fifth, extending Seattle’s advantage to 5-0.

Yankees rookie Jonathan Loaisiga, making his second major league start in place of injured Masahiro Tanaka Artemi Panarin Jersey , allowed three runs on six hits and two walks in 3 2/3 innings.

New York broke through in the fifth with two outs and runners on first and second. Aaron Judge hit a broken-bat single to left, scoring Miguel Andujar. Aaron Hicks also came home when Span bobbled the ball.

”I knew our offense was going to come through eventually,” said Judge, who had his first three-hit game since May 9.

Gregorius’ sacrifice fly in the seventh made it 5-3.

SAYING GOODBYE

A moment of silence was held before the game for Billy Connors, a three-time Yankees pitching coach and confidant of late owner George Steinbrenner. Connors died Saturday, the team said. He was 76. Connors also served as vice president of player personnel from 1996 to 2012.

TRAINER’S ROOM

Mariners: RHP Hisashi Iwakuma (right shoulder surgery) remains in Arizona, where his first rehab start was pushed back due to soreness. He was scheduled to play catch Wednesday. … OF Guillermo Heredia was not in the starting lineup after batting just .122 this month, but entered as a defensive replacement in the seventh. ”G is struggling a bit lately,” Servais said. ”Also, extra left-handed hitter in this ballpark (is) not a bad thing.”

Yankees: OF Brett Gardner (swollen right knee) ran and took batting practice before the game. He has not played since Saturday. ”Feeling optimistic that it’s not going to be a DL thing,” Boone said. … Tanaka (two strained hamstrings) played catch and rode an exercise bike. … Jacoby Ellsbury is in Florida and might be getting close to resuming baseball activities, according to Boone. The outfielder has been sidelined all season by a string of injuries Saints Cheap Jerseys , including a strained right oblique, sore back, sore left hip and plantar fasciitis in his right heel.

UP NEXT

Mariners: LHP James Paxton (6-1, 3.44 ERA) starts the series finale. He is 5-0 with a 2.55 ERA since the beginning of May, a span of nine starts that included a no-hitter in Toronto.

Yankees: RHP Luis Severino (10-2, 2.09) threw eight scoreless innings Saturday against Tampa Bay, becoming the first Yankees pitcher with 10 wins before the All-Star break since Tanaka in 2014.



Now that quarterback Josh Allen is under contract, the big question remaining is how long it will be before the Buffalo Bills‘ rookie first-round draft pick takes over the starting job.

The Bills signed Allen to a four-year contract on Wednesday, a day before they open training camp in the Rochester suburbs.

Allen is the heir-apparent starter after Buffalo traded up five spots to select the Wyoming player with the seventh pick in the draft. He was the third quarterback taken in April, and the first ever selected by Buffalo among the top 10 picks in the draft order.

The 22-year-old still has plenty of work ahead to establish himself, and coach Sean McDermott said in June that he has no intention of rushing the quarterback’s development.

”It’s about bringing him along the right way,” McDermott said. ”We’re not going to put him out there unless we feel like he’s ready.”

Allen spent all but the final week of the Bills spring minicamps serving as the third-string quarterback Jeff Skinner Jersey , while free-agent addition AJ McCarron and returning backup Nathan Peterman split time with the starters.

At 6-foot-5 and 250 pounds, Allen is a raw but strong-armed and athletic quarterback. He was a two-year starter at Wyoming, where he completed 365 of 649 passes for 5,066 yards with 44 touchdowns and 21 interceptions.

The Bills are again shuffling starters after Tyrod Taylor was traded to Cleveland in March despite helping Buffalo to a 9-7 finish and ending a 17-year playoff drought.

Running back LeSean McCoy was among the players to report Wednesday for the start of camp, team spokesman Derek Boyko told The Associated Press.

McCoy’s status was unclear after he was accused of playing a role in his ex-girlfriend being bloodied during a home invasion two weeks ago at a house the running back owns in the Atlanta suburbs.

McCoy denied any involvement in the home invasion and other allegations posted on social media by a woman who appeared to be a friend of his ex-girlfriend.

The Bills issued a statement saying they were gathering information and had been in contact with McCoy and the NFL. The league said it was reviewing the matter.

The Bills placed receiver Zay Jones on the active/non-football injury list. The second-year player had knee surgery in May, which forced him to miss all of the team’s spring sessions.

Jones is allowed to work out individually, but is not allowed to practice with the team until the Bills remove him from the list.

Buffalo’s second-round draft pick in 2017, Jones also had surgery in January for a shoulder injury, which had nagged him for most of his rookie season.

The Bills also released defensive tackle Tenny Palepoi. He signed with Buffalo in April after spending three seasons with the Chargers.
