VIDEO: Edwin Encarnacion and Didi Gregorius Go Yard as Yankees Take Lead on Tigers

In what's been a wild game between the playoff-bound New York Yankees (95-50) and the worst team in the MLB, the Detroit Tigers (42-100), the Yankees took the lead on back-to-back home runs from Edwin Encarnacion and Didi Gregorius in the seventh inning, giving the Yankees a 11-10 lead.

One is fine, but twice is nice. That's where Didi comes in.

Even more notably, Didi's home run was the 276th of the year for the Yankees, which is tied with the Minnesota Twins for most home runs by a team in a single season. And Rob Manfred seriously claims that these balls aren't juiced up.
