Gleyber continues to sizzle with 7th HR of '18

MLB.com @BryanHoch

ARLINGTON -- Gleyber Torres' bat continued to sizzle on Tuesday. The Yankees rookie slugged the first pitch he saw from Rangers left-hander Cole Hamels into the left-field bleachers for a home run in the third inning, circling the bases for his fourth homer in as many games, though the Yankees would go on to lose, 6-4.

Torres' seventh big league homer trimmed Texas' lead to four runs at the time, one night after the 21-year-old joined Mickey Mantle as the youngest Yankees to enjoy a multihomer game. Torres is also the youngest player in franchise history to hit seven homers in his first 26 games.
