Mike Stobe/Getty ImagesThe New York Yankees made history on Saturday by becoming the sixth team in Major League Baseball history to club 250 home runs in a single season Cory Spangenberg Jersey , per's Bryan Hoch.New York center fielder Aaron Hicks provided the historic swing when he sent the 0-2 offering from Baltimore Orioles right-hander David Hess in the bottom of the second into the seats in right:New York Yankees YankeesRound and round they go. B1YO1ypZ8rOf course, many believed the Yankees could challenge the all-time record this year after acquiring reigning National League MVP Giancarlo Stanton from the Miami Marlins last offseason.Stanton (59) and 2017 American League MVP runner-up Aaron Judge (52) hit the most round-trippers in all of baseball last year. Putting them in the same lineup ith half of their games at the hitter-friendly Yankee Stadium eant there would be no shortage of souvenirs at Yankees games this season.However, they are not the only ones who have been mashing. The Yankees have set an MLB record by having 12 players with double-digit home runs in a single-season. In other words, there's a reason they call them the Bronx Bombers.According to theYES Network, New York has also tied a franchise record by having five players with 25-plus dingers.MLB's Daren Willman tweeted out a detailed chart of all of the Yankees' homers to that point:Daren Willman darenw.Yankees have hit 245 home runs this season.27 more than the next closest team and tied with their franchise record. Thats a lot of dingers wkOLpNanaNThis year's squad already owns the franchise record for most long balls in a single-season, already topping last year's club (241). Now, its sights are set on the MLB record.Luke Voit added another dinger on Saturday later in the second inning to give New York 251 home runs in 2018. The Bronx Bombers will need 13 homers in their final eight-plus games to tie the 1997 Seattle Mariners and 14 to make the record their own , according to Hoch:Bryan Hoch BryanHochThe Bronx Bombers are mashing toward a record.1997 Mariners - 264 HR2005 Rangers - 260 HR2010 Blue Jays - 257 HR1996 Orioles - 257 HR2018 #Yankees - 251 HRThe scary part? Judge recently missed more than a month due to a wrist injury, with Gary Sanchez having appeared in just 83 games due to injury as well. Imagine what the Yankees' home run total would look like if those two sluggers had been healthy all season. PEORIA, Ariz. (AP) — Left-hander Marco Gonzales is considered one of the Seattle Mariners‘ building blocks after a breakout 2018 season, but he does not define his role in those terms.He just wants to do his job and let the results speak for themselves.“In my mind, it has always been that I have to earn everything that I get,” Gonzales said. “We’ll see where we are at when the season starts, but I am going to do everything I can to help us win games. Whatever you want to call that , that’s what I’ll be doing.”Gonzales did it well a year ago, when he went 13-9 with a 4.00 ERA in 29 starts in his first full season with the Mariners after being acquired from St. Louis for outfielder Tyler O’Neil at the 2017 trade deadline.Gonzales was among the best pitchers in the American League during a 10-week midseason stretch, when he was 9-6 with a 2.61 ERA in 12 starts beginning May 23.After spending three weeks on the injured list with a neck strain in late August, he picked it up again, going 1-0 with a 1.74 ERA in four September starts.Gonzales and Mike Leake are likely to follow Yusei Kikuchi in the Mariners’ rotation, although the two-game series against Oakland in Japan on March 20-21 could skew the alignment early in the season.“Marco really matured as the season went along,” manager Scott Servais said. “He really took a step forward as the season progressed in understanding how to use all of his pitches. And then getting great results allowed him to get deeper in games.“That was kind of the stumbling block when we first got Marco , could we get him through the lineup the third time? We challenged him early on. He wasn’t happy with some of the decisions I made, but he earned the right to go deep in games, and for a stretch there was awesome.”Gonzales also excels at the finer points. He permitted only four stolen bases in nine attempts a year ago while using four pitches almost interchangeably, leading with a fastball.He added a cut fastball last season, and he threw all four — four-seam fastball, cutter, changeup Derek Holland Jersey , curve — at least 22 percent of the time. That command can make for an uncomfortable at-bat.“A guy like me who can locate all four, I think I need to be unpredictable and just have that good mix and be able to attack with each one,” Gonzales said. “That’s my goal. Those are the things I’m working on in a nutshell. That’s important to me.”Gonzales averaged only 1.7 walks per nine innings in 2018, fourth behind Cleveland’s Corey Kluber, Houston’s Justin Verlander and teammate Leake in the league. He averaged 4 1/2 strikeouts for every walk, fifth in the league.“If I’m going to get beat, if I’m going to get hit around Buster Posey Jersey , I’d rather be in the zone than putting guys on base,” Gonzales said. “I’m going to attack guys and see what they have and make them swing the bat.”Servais believes in that approach.“I think it is really important he just be Marco,” Servais said. “Be who you are. Don’t lose sight of what you do well.”Gonzales, who missed the 2016 season after undergoing ligament replacement surgery in his left elbow, said the neck issue he suffered last season helped give him an awareness of what it takes to attack a full season.“Just trying to make some adjustments at the end of the year and finish strong,” Gonzales said of his September success. “Having a little hiccup last year and having to bounce back will help me to endure another year.”
