New York Yankees second baseman Gleyber Torres hits a home run for the third game in a row (AP Photo). • Gleyber Torres homered for the third consecutive game Wednesday, giving him five long balls over the past five contests and an impressive .323/.385/.613 line on the season. Torres is on pace to record 78 RBI despite not debuting until April 22 and batting mostly ninth, a spot he’ll likely permanently move out of soon.
