Stanton hits two home runs and the Yankees win

GIancarlo Stanton snapped off his lousy hitting streak by hitting two home runs and the New York Yankees had four homers to beat the Cleveland Indians 5-3 on Friday night.

One of the home runs of Stanton made the ball register the fastest speed in any game this season.

In the third inning, Stanton hit a 429-foot home run off Logan Allen (1-3), firing the ball at 118 mph. In the fifth, he got the second.

He hadn’t hit more than one home run in a game since Sept. 27, 2018. Stanton was hitting .158 and was 3-for-34.

New York has won two consecutive duels and three out of four, after a horrendous start to the campaign. The Yankees overcame a 3-0 deficit in the first inning for the second straight game.

The Venezuelan Rougned Odor added a two-run homer, while Aaron Hicks also disappeared the ball for New York.

Lucas Luetge (1-0) got four outs for his first major league win since 2013, when he was playing in Seattle.

For the Yankees, the Venezuelans Gleyber Torres 4-0, Odor 4-1 with one scored and two RBIs. Colombian Gio Urshela 3-0. Gary Sanchez 4-1 with a run scored.
