Stanton hits his 400th home run to lead Cole and the Yankees to a 5-1 victory over the Tigers

NEW YORK (AP) — Giancarlo Stanton smashed his 400th home run, Gerrit Cole burnished his Cy Young Award credentials and the New York Yankees beat the Detroit Tigers 5-1 on Tuesday night. DJ LeMahieu hit his second leadoff homer in four games and Gleyber Torres had a two-run double for the last-place Yankees, who have won four straight and seven of eight to get back to .500 for the first time since Aug. 15. Stanton’s two-run homer off reliever José Cisnero broke a 1-all tie in the sixth inning. The slugger reached 400 homers in 1,520 career games — fourth-fastest in major league history behind Mark McGwire, Babe Ruth and Alex Rodriguez.
