The New York Yankees all of a sudden are the hottest team in baseball offensively. This week the Yankees pounded the Toronto Blue Jays in a three game sweep by a combined score of 43-14 at Yankee Stadium.
With the sweep, the Yankees improved to a record of 29 wins and 21 losses. The Blue Jays are still doing ok, with a record of 26 wins and 23 losses. However there is no doubt that Toronto needs to fix its pitching woes fast if they hope to be one of the 16 teams in the 2020 Major League Baseball postseason.
As a team this week, the Yankees recorded 18 home runs. That is a record for the most home runs in a series.
