The red-hot Stanton delivered the big blow in Tuesday night’s series opener against the Toronto Blue Jays, driving a low pitch from Trevor Richards into the second deck in left for a three-run homer to put his team ahead 6-2 in the seventh inning.
The impressive shot marked the lowest ball Stanton has ever hit for a home run.

It marked the fourth game in a row in which Stanton has homered, giving him 35 on the season. All four have also helped the Yankees win games, vaulting New York ahead of Toronto and the Boston Red Sox in the race for the American League’s top wild-card spot.
Here’s a look at some reaction to Stanton’s latest home run:

Just an amazing swing by Stanton to hit that changeup out of the park
How unlikely was it?
Trevor Richards had thrown 917 changeups down & out of the zone in his MLB career before tonight and none (!!!) had ever been hit for a HR.
Crazy & unbelievable hit. pic.twitter.com/HiCN15EX2n
