Gleyber Torres' two-run homer off Eduardo Rodriguez sent the Yankees into the record books on Saturday, giving New York the all-time mark for most home runs in one season. 

The Yankees have now blasted 265 dingers on the year, surpassing the 1997 Mariners. New York tied the record last night, hitting four homers in an 11-6 victory. 

The Bronx Bombers set an additional record in 2018, holding the most players in MLB history with 10-plus homers in one season. Twelve Yankees have hit 10-or-more homers this year, led by 37 from Giancarlo Stanton. New York has also received 20-plus homers from all nine spots in the batting order this season, the first team to ever accomplish such a feat.
