With New York trailing the Pittsburgh Pirates by an 8-5 score with nobody out and the bases loaded, Stanton unloaded for a walk-off grand slam.
On a night where Aaron Judge hit home run No. 60 and came to within one homer of tying Roger Maris for the all-time American League record, Stanton provided the finishing touches on a dramatic come-from-behind win.
It was Stanton’s third walk-off grand slam.

Stanton Wins It
While Judge stole the show with his history making home run, Stanton made a little history of his own last night with his third walk-off grand slam.
The Pirates never recorded an out in the bottom of the ninth.
The Yankees got going at just the right time and stole one from the woeful Pirates.
But this is an elite record on behalf of Stanton.
One walk-off grand slam is impressive enough.
Three is insane, and he’s in some pretty legendary company of players who have done it three times, company that includes former Yankee superstar Alex Rodriguez.
That grand slam gave the Yankees win No. 89 on the season and helped them maintain their 5.5-game lead over the Toronto Blue Jays.
Stanton has struggled with some injuries during his time with the Yankees, but when he’s healthy, he and Judge form a deadly duo in that lineup.
The 32-year-old is hitting .210 with 27 homers and 73 RBI in 362 at-bats this season.
The Yankees will try for a series win tonight against Pittsburgh.
They’ll send Luis Severino to the mound.NEXT: Yankees Fans Are Officially On Aaron Judge History Watch
