Yankees make remarkable bit of franchise history in first inning of Game 5

New York Yankees

With their backs to the wall in Game 5 of the ALCS, the New York Yankees responded in a legitimately historic way.

Down 3-1 to the Houston Astros in the ALCS and already trailing 1-0 in a decisive Game 5, the Yankees stepped in against Justin Verlander and set a new franchise mark. DJ LeMahieu led off the game with a home run, and later in the inning, Aaron Hicks hit a three-run shot off the right field foul pole to give the Yankees a 4-1 lead.

What’s so historic about that? Never before in franchise history had the Yankees hit two home runs in the first inning of a postseason game.

No better way to move on from an incredibly difficult Game 4 than to make Yankee history in the very first inning.
