AROUND THE HORN
■ Yankees: Gleyber Torres and Giancarlo Stanton connected as the Yankees broke the major league record for HRs in a season and reached 100 wins with an
8-5 victory over the Red Sox on Saturday in Boston. Torres’ tworun drive in the fourth was the Yankees’ 265th of the year and moved them past the 1997 Mariners for the mark. The Yankees, who will host A’s in the AL wild-card game Wednesday, improved to 100-61 . ... Major League Baseball suspended LHP CC Sabathia for five games Saturday for hitting Rays catcher Jesus Sucre in the leg Thursday, a penalty that won’t take effect until next season. Sabathia appealed the ban.
■ Cardinals: RHP Miles Mikolas outpitched LHP Cole Hamels, and the Cardinals beat the Cubs
2-1 in Chicago. Mikolas (18-4) allowed one unearned run and five hits in eight innings for his fifth straight win. He struck out six, walked none and improved to
10-0 in 16 road starts. Matt Carpenter and Paul DeJong each had RBI singles in the victory. The NL Central-leading Cubs began the day just one game ahead of the Brewers, who hosted the Tigers later that night.
■ Astros: RHP Justin Verlander struck out 10, Carlos Correa homered and hit a tiebreaking RBI double in the ninth, and the Astros beat the host Orioles 4-3 in the opener of a doubleheader. Verlander allowed three hits and walked one in six innings. In his
14th big-league season, Verlander went 16-9 with an AL-leading and career-high 290 strikeouts and only 37 walks in 214 innings.
■ Mets: David Wright started at third base against the Marlins in his farewell game before a sellout crowd at Citi Field in New York. The longtime Mets captain finally made it back into a majorleague game Friday, grounding out in his first plate appearance in nearly 21⁄2 years. Unable to overcome injuries, the 35-yearold Wright said he expects this weekend to mark his final appearance in the big leagues. After two at-bats Saturday, he left the game to a long standing ovation.
