The New York Yankees seem to have found their groove again.
Two very impressive wins over the slumping and already mathematically eliminated Pittsburgh Pirates is proof enough of that.
On Tuesday night, they became the first team in baseball history to have a player reach 60 home runs on the season and have another player hit a walk-off grand slam.
They accomplished that in the same inning.
In addition to that, they have made even more history over these last two games.
They also managed to hit a grand slam in consecutive innings, with Stanton’s walk-off slam having been one with the Yankees down by three.
They had a player hit two home runs in the same inning and had a duo of players 25 or younger with five or more RBI in a game.
The Yankees have done all of that, including Judge hitting his 60th homer in just a span of two days.
No team in baseball history has accomplished all five feats ever.
Feats for @Yankees the last 2 days:
– player with 60th HR of season
– ultimate grand slam (walkoff down by 3)
– grand slam in consecutive innings
– player with 2 HR in inning
– 25-or-younger duo with 5+ RBI in same game
No other team has done all of those in its entire history.

Yanks Accomplish List Of Feats
This is some crazy history being made by the Yankees right now.
To have accomplished all five feats in the same season, let alone in the past two days, is absolutely insane.
Again, no team has accomplished all five feats until now.
The Yankees have accomplished a lot of impressive feats this season in addition to these.
They’re doing it at just the right time, too, as October is approaching fast.
This is what you want out of your team when you’re in the stretch run.
You may not expect these historic feats to happen in a span of two days, but the Yankees are playing their best baseball right now, and the timing couldn’t be any better.
