NEW YORK | Stanton hits hardest HR clocked by Statcast, Yanks top Texas
NEW YORK — Giancarlo Stanton’s teammates jumped out of the dugout, amazed at how fast the power hitter’s latest homer sped into the Yankee Stadium seats.
The Yankee slugger? Well, it was just another one in his ledger.
Stanton hit the hardest homer ever measured by Major League Baseball’s Statcast system, Neil Walker hit two more home runs and New York beat the Texas Rangers 7-3 on Thursday night.
“It’s cool when you get to numbers like that,” Stanton said.
