New York Yankees second baseman Gleyber Torres became the youngest player in American League history with a home run in four consecutive games after a 375-foot shot Friday night off Los Angeles Angels relief pitcher Jim Johnson.
"I feel proud for that," Torres said. "I feel good. But I feel great because I'm helping the team and we win. That's what's important."
The 21-year-old Venezuela native has posted a terrific .333/.393/.646 triple-slash line with nine homers and 24 RBI through his first 28 games with New York.
It says a lot about the Yankees' deep lineup that a player with his type of skill and upside is hitting ninth.
The Yanks won Friday's game 2-1 to move to 32-15, the second-best mark in baseball behind the rival Boston Red Sox.
