NO>>>HE DRILLS ONE TO THE BRIGHT. IT IS FAR, IT IS GONE! TO TIE THE GAME! AUSTIN ROMINE LINED ONE TO RIGHT. DOWN THE LINE INTO THE SEATS. ROMY, MY HOMEY. HE HOMERS TO TIE IT, AND WE’RE ALL DEADLOCKED AT FIVE. >>HE WILL WALK IT OUT TO RIGHT CENTER FIELD. BACK GOES ALMORA, NEAR THE WALL, IT’S OUT OF HERE. PETE ALONSO TIES DARRYL STRAWBERRY’S METS ROOKIE HOME RUN RECORD WITH NUMBER 26, AND LESS THAN HALFWAY THROUGH THE SEASON, HE’S ALREADY ASKED HIS NAME IN THE METS RECORD BOOK. >>WHAT’S UP, EVERYBODY? WELCOME TO GEICO SPORTS NIGHT. I’M CHRIS WILLIAMS AND ALONGSIDE MY MAN, LARRY RIDLEY. TONIGHT SHOWED SIGNS OF LIFE AGAINST THE CUBS, ACTUALLY SHOWING UP WHAT SEEMS LIKE FOREVER AND McNEIL/KEEP ELEVATING THEIR GAME. UCONN MAKING HEADLINES WHEN THEY PLAN ON LEAVING THE AMERICAN ATHLETIC CONFERENCE, AND HOW IT AFFECTS HOOPS AND FOOTBALL. BUT OF COURSE WE’LL START WITH SOME BASEBALL. THE METROPOLITANS ON CHICAGO AT NORTHSIDE. METS LOOKING FOR BACK-TO-BACK GAMES IN WRIGLEY FOR THE FIRST TIME IN 17 YEARS. PETE ALONSO PROBING IS THAT PREGAME. ALONSO ON JOSE QUINTANA. HE’S GOT THE KEYS. THAT’S GONE. ALONSO TIES DARRYL STRAWBERRY FOR THE METS ROOKIE HOME RUN RECORD, 26, ALSO SET THE N.L. RECORD FOR MOST HOMERS BEFORE THE ALL-STAR BREAK BY A ROOKIE. METS UP 1-2. TOP 3, 3-0, TODD FRAZIER, HE’S NOT HAPPY WITH THE SPOT. LOOK AT HIS REACTION THERE’S ACTUALLY A TWO-RUN HOME RUN AND WE’LL WAIT AND REMIX THIS ONE. FRAZIER PUTS HIS BAT, GETS HIS EIGHTH A RUN OF THE SEASON. NEW YORK UP 5-0. TOUGH FOUR, SAINT SCORE. ONE ON, JEFF McNEIL. CAN RAKE. TO LEFT-CENTER AND PASSED A DIVING KYLE SCHWARBER. ROSARIO SCORES. 2 FOR 5, FIFTH STRAIGHT MULTI HIT GAME. TOP-FIVE NOW, 7-0, METS. RAMOS – MAKES QUINTANA APP STATE EVEN WORSE. HIS EIGHTH OF THE SEASON. BUT A FIVE, WE WERE KEEPING THE CUBS OF THE BOARD. THIS TIME STRIKEOUT ADDISON RUSSELL SWINGING TO END THE INNING. BOTTOM SIX, DANIEL DESCALSO TO FLY OUT TO LEFT. 15th CONSECUTIVE OUT. HE WOULD GO SEVEN INNINGS, FIVE HITS, ONE RUN, WALKED ONE. FIVE STRIKEOUTS. METS WIN 10-2. HERE IS THE SKIPPER AND THE ROOKIE. >>IT’S AMAZING. IT’S A RIDICULOUS. THE POWER IS UNBELIEVABLE. THE ABILITY TO HIT IS UNBELIEVABLE. HE’S DOING IT ALL. HIS DEFENSE HAS BEEN TREMENDOUS. THE BALLS HE PICKS SOMETIMES ARE UNBELIEVABLE. HE’S UNBELIEVABLE.>>OF OTHER PEOPLE DIDN’T TELL ME, THAN I WOULD HAVE NO IDEA, BUT I WAS JUST TRYING TO PUT TOGETHER A REALLY GOOD AT-BAT TO START OFF THE GAME, AND SET THE TONE, AND JUST PUT THE BALL ON THE BAT AND IT WENT FOR ME. >>HERE IS A LOOK AT THE MOST ROOKIE HOME RUNS IN METS FRANCHISE HISTORY PRESENTED BY GEICO. ALONSO TYING DARRYL STRAWBERRY WITH 26 POWER BALLS. ALONSO DOING IT IN 46 LESS GAMES. PETE, HE’S ON PACE TO GET MORE THAN 50 HOME RUNS THIS SEASON, WHICH WOULD BREAK THE MLB RECORD. HERE IS CHRIS AND THE BASEBALL NIGHT IN NEW YORK CREW. >>TIME NOW FOR BASEBALL NIGHT IN NEW YORK WITH JOHN YASTRZEMSKI AND ANTHONY McCARRON. PETE ALONSO, I’M RUNNING OUT OF ADJECTIVES TO DESCRIBE THIS MAN, HAVING AN HISTORIC YEAR, HITS HIS 26 HOME RUNS, TIES THE ROOKIE RECORD OF DARRYL STRAWBERRY. HOW IMPRESSED? WHAT MORE COULD WE SAY ABOUT THIS GUY>>IT’S AMAZING WHAT HE’S DONE SO FAR, AND I THINK IT’S GOING TO GET GOING, TOO. I’M ALL IN ON PETE ALONSO UNTIL I SEE SOMETHING DIFFERENT. HE’S ON PACE TO DESTROY AARON JUDGE’S RECORD, TOO. I CLOCKED HIM ON PACE FOR 55 HOME RUNS AS A ROOKIE. THAT WOULD BE SOME FEED IF HE WERE ABLE TO DO THAT. BUT WHAT HE’S DONE, HE’S NOT JUST A PEER SLUGGER, EITHER. WE’RE TALKING A LOT ABOUT ITS OWNERS. SEEMS LIKE HE HITS ONE EVERY DAY, BUT THIS GUY IS A REALLY GOOD HITTER AND A PEER HITTER SENSE, HE USES THE OTHER FIELD, IS NOT JUST PULL HAPPY. HE’S GOT A LOT GOING FOR HIM. NEEDS TO BE ON THE ALL-STAR TEAM. HE NEEDS TO BE IN THE HOME RUN DERBY, TOO. IT’S JUST BEEN A PLEASURE TO WATCH.>>I THINK WE CAN PUT TO BED THE CONVERSATION OF WHETHER OR NOT PETE ALONSO IS AN ALL-STAR. WATCH THEM PLAY THIS YEAR, IT GOES WITHOUT SAYING THAT THIS GUY IS ONE OF THE PREMIER FIRST BASEMAN IN THE NATIONAL LEAGUE, AND TO YOUR POINT, I LOVE HIS POWER TO THE OPPOSITE FIELD. THE FACT THAT YOU WERE MENTIONING HIM IN THE SAME SENTENCE AS ROOKIE YEARS BETWEEN ALONSO AND DARRYL STRAWBERRY, THE FACT THAT YOU CAN MENTION ALONSO IN THE SAME SENTENCE AS AARON JUDGE. THE MOST IMPORTANT DEVELOPMENT FOR THE METS THIS YEAR IS I THINK THEY HAVE FOUND THEMSELVES A FACE OF THE FRANCHISE. WE KNOW deGROM HAS BEEN THAT GUY OVER THE LAST COUPLE YEARS. WE TALKED ABOUT THE PITCHERS. BUT YOU WANTED TO SEE A YOUNG, EMERGING POSITION PLAYER TURN INTO A STUD. THE METS HAVE TWO. McNEIL IS ONE BUT PETE ALONSO, DIGGING THE LONG BALL. WE TALKED ABOUT THAT YESTERDAY. YOU KNOW THE CHICKS ARE DIGGING THE LONG BALL WITH ALONSO.>>J.J. QUICKLY, DO YOU THINK ALONSO IS BETTER THAN JUDGE?>>I WOULDN’T GO THAT FAR. LISTEN, THIS IS NO KNOCK ON PETE ALONSO, BUT IT IS WHAT, THREE MONTHS NOW THE SAMPLE SIZE, I BELIEVE IN HIM, I THINK IS GOING TO GET 45-PLUS HOME RUNS. I GUESS THE QUESTION FOR PETE ALONSO IN HIS FIRST YEAR IS CAN HE MATCH THAT ROOKIE HOME RUN TOTAL THAT AARON JUDGE HAD IN 2017. THIS IS GOING TO BE ANOTHER ONE OF THOSE FUN DEBATES WE HAVE IN NEW YORK NOW FOR QUITE SOME TIME. REMEMBER A COUPLE YEARS AGO IT WAS JUDGE AND CONFORTO. NO KNOCK ON MICHAEL CONFORTO, HE’S JUST NOT THAT SORT OF PLAYER. BUT I DO THINK PETE ALONSO’S POWER AND KNOWING WHAT AARON JUDGE BRINGS ON THE OTHER SIDE OF TOWN, IT’S SOMETHING THE YANKEES AND METS FANS CAN HAVE SOME FUN WITH. I’M NOT READY TO GO THERE YET. IT’S NO KNOCK ON ALONSO. THAT’S HOW GOOD AARON JUDGE IS. >>JUDGE HAS A LITTLE MORE OF THE BANK THAN ALONSO DOES. IT’S ONE TO THINK ABOUT HIM CHALLENGING AARON JUDGE FOR BEST PLAYER IN NEW YORK. >>PEOPLE WOULD LOVE TO SEE THAT BATTLE BETWEEN JUDGE AND YOUR BOY, ALONSO. SOMEBODY ELSE WHO HAS BEEN REALLY DOMINANT THIS SEASON, JEFF McNEIL, FIVE STRAIGHT MULTI HIT GAMES. THE GUY IS A MACHINE. YOU SEE THIS COMING BECAUSE THEY WERE ABOUT TO TRADE THIS GUY TO SEATTLE.>>IF HE WAS A MARINER. >>HE WAS IN THAT CANO/DIAZ WHICH I KNOW WAS VERY POPULAR IN CERTAIN SEGMENTS OF METS FANS RIGHT NOW. BUT IMAGINE IF McNEIL HAD BEEN IN THERE AS WELL. BUT THIS GUY, I DON’T THINK ANYBODY EXPECTED THIS. BABY JEFF McNEIL DID, BECAUSE HE’S A VERY CONFIDENT GUY, AND I MEAN THAT AS A COMPLEMENT. BUT I THINK HE KNEW HE COULD DO SOMETHING LIKE THIS, .340 NEIGHBORHOOD, EVEN THE METS HAVE FEVER DREAMS, I DON’T THINK THOUGHT HE WAS GOING TO GO THERE. I LOVE THE WAY HE APPROACHES THE GAME. WE’RE IN THIS LAUNCH ANGLE ERA NOW, FELLAS, WE’RE GUYS ARE TRYING TO JACKED THE BALL OUT OF THE PARK ALL THE TIME, AND YOU’VE GOT THE SQUIRREL KNOCKING THE BALL DOWN THE THIRD BASE LINE, AND HE’S THROWING THE BALL DOWN THERE TO KNOCKING RUNS. IT’S GREAT TO WATCH, IT’S LIKE A BREATH OF FRESH AIR. HE’S NOT UNIQUE BUT HE’S DIFFERENT THAN WHAT WE’RE SEEING IS A TREND ACROSS THE GAME. >>THIS SHOULD BE TAKING A PAGE OUT OF JEFF McNEIL PLAYBOOK BECAUSE THERE ARE WAY TOO MANY STRIKEOUTS ACROSS THE GAME. WHEN YOU HAVE A GUY WHO COULD SIMPLY PUT THE BAT ON THE BALL, GO THE OTHER WAY, HIT IT WHERE IT’S PITCHED, IT SEEMS LIKE SUCH A SIMPLE CONCEPT, FELLAS, BUT McNEIL, TO HIS CREDIT, HE’S MASTERED THE ART, AND IT HAS REALLY GIVEN THE METS — THINK ABOUT WHERE THEY’RE AT RIGHT NOW AS THEY GET READY FOR A BIG GAME ON SUNDAY. HAVEN’T WON A ROAD SERIES SINCE THE MONTH OF APRIL. REMARKABLE WHEN YOU THINK ABOUT IT. WHERE WOULD THIS TEAM BE WITHOUT PETE ALONSO AND WITHOUT JEFF McNEIL COULD YOU IMAGINE? COULD YOU IMAGINE IF JEFF McNEIL WAS DOING THIS FOR THE SEATTLE MARINERS RIGHT NOW>>SO LIVID TO SEE THE METS MAKE ANOTHER BAT LIKE THAT. BUT THANKFULLY THEY ARE ON THE TEAM THEY’RE GIVING THEM SOME LIFE, EVEN THOUGH THEY’RE STILL THREE GAMES UNDER .500. HOPEFULLY THESE TWO GUYS WILL BE IN THE ALL-STAR GAME AND IF ALONSO IS IN THE HOME RUN DERBY, THAT WILL BE SOMETHING REALLY GREAT FOR THE FANS. THE SEASON COULD BE A DISAPPOINTMENT, BUT AT LEAST THEY HAVE THAT TO GO FORWARD. >>THERE IS SOMETHING TO LOOK FORWARD TO WITH THOSE GUYS. WITHOUT THEM, I DON’T KNOW WHAT THE METS Q RATING WOULD BE. IT WOULD BE PRETTY BLEAK BECAUSE THEY ARE REALLY SOMETHING TO SEE. AND I THINK THEY’VE BEEN OVERSHADOWED WITH SOME OF THE DRAMA THAT THE METS HAVE EXPERIENCED, TOO. WE HAVEN’T GOTTEN AS EXCITED AS MAYBE WE SHOULD ABOUT IT McNEIL AND ALONSO. >>YOU ALWAYS PROVIDE GREAT STUFF. THANKS MUCH FOR STOPPING BY.>>GOOD STUFF, FELLAS. WHEN WE RETURN, MASAHIRO TANAKA COMING OFF HIS BEST START OF THE SEASON, LOOKING TO KEEP THE YANKEES ROLLING. HOW THE BOMBERS CAME BACK AGAIN LATE TO KEEP THEIR STREAK ALIVE. WITH COLOR PICTURES AHEAD. PLUS, PENGUINS FOR UCONN. WHAT IS ALL THESE NEW AGAIN. THE HUSKIES LEAVING THE AMERICAN FOR THE BIG EAST WHEN THEY ALL JOINED THEIR NEW LEAD. CANNED — PETE ALONSO CONTINUING TO RAKE AND SET RECORDS. ANOTHER BIG FLY ON SATURDAY. WE’LL REVISIT THE ROOKIE’S BECAME. YOU’RE WATCHING GEICO SPORTS NIGHT RIGHT HERE ON S AND WHY. ♪ I want it that way… ♪ I can’t believe it. That Karl brought his

YANKEES LEAD 2-0. MASAHIRO TANAKA ON THE MOUND. JOSH REDDICK HITS ONE OUT TO RIGHT FOR EIGHT TWO RUN SHOT, HIS NINTH OF THE YEAR. ESTERS TIE IT AT TWO. TANAKA GIVES UP TWO RUNS. NOW THE YANKEES THREATENING, BASES-LOADED, GIANCARLO STANTON GROUNDED TO THIRD. YULI GURRIEL INTO LEFT FOR A BASE HIT. MAYHEW AND AARON JUDGE BOTH SCORE. YANKEES GRAB A 4-2 LEAD. NOW JONATHAN HOLDER IN TO PITCH THE SEVENTH WITH TWO RUNNERS ON. YORDANO ALVAREZ DRIVES ONE TO RIGHT FOR A THREE RUN BLAST, HIS SIXTH OF THE YEAR. ASTROS TAKE A 5-4 LEAD, JUST LIKE THAT. BEGAN KEYS WOULD ANSWER IN THE HOME HALF OF THE SEVENTH. AUSTIN ROMINE HITS ONE THE OTHER WAY, DEEP TO RIGHT FOR A HOME RUN, HIS SECOND OF THE YEAR. WE’RE TIED UP AT FIVE. LATER IN THE INNING, TWO ON, TWO OUT, STANTON GROUNDS A SINGLE THROUGH THE LEFT SIDE. TWO RUNS SCORE. STAND IN WITH FOUR RBI FOR THE GAME AND GIVES THE YANKEES A 7-5 LEAD. TOP OF THE NINTH, AROLDIS CHAPMAN NOT AVAILABLE SO THEY GO TO ZACH BRITTON. ON FOR THE SAVE WITH THE BASES LOADED AND TWO OUTS, TYLER WHITE LINED ONE TO JUDGE AND WRITE TO END THE GAME. YANKEES HANG ON TO WIN 7-5, THEIR EIGHTH IN A ROW. HERE IS AARON BOONE ON STANTON’S HE HIT. >>THOSE ARE TOUGH AT-BATS, TOO. MILEY WAS REALLY TOUGH ON US. I THOUGHT COMMAND-WISE WITH THE CUTTER AND THE CHANGE-UP, TO GET US ON THE BOARD THERE, THEN PRESLEY, THAT’S ABOUT AS TOUGH A DRAW AS YOU’RE GOING TO HAVE RIGHT THERE. GET INTO A REALLY GOOD COUNT AND SMOKE A BALL. BIG AT-BATS BY HIM. HOPE EVERYONE TAKES NOTICE OF THAT. >>BACK HERE FOR BASEBALL NIGHT IN NEW YORK. DOWN THERE AT THE VERY END, WE GET BACK TO STANTON HERE. LET’S TAKE A LOOK. TALK ABOUT THE WINS. ASTROS HAVE LOST SEVEN STRAIGHT. A NICE LITTLE COME BACK. LOOK AT THE YANKEES, SIX WEEKS AHEAD IN THE LOSS COLUMN, AHEAD OF TAMPA. RED SOX 7 1/2 BACK. HOW MUCH RESILIENCY ARE THEY SHOWING THESE LAST WEEKS>>IT’S AMAZING WHAT THEY’VE DONE, LARRY. THEY’VE GOT A LOT OF CONTRIBUTIONS FROM ALL THE WAY AROUND THE DIAMOND, WHICH IS SOMETHING THAT THEY REALLY EXCELLED AT ALL YEAR. RELINE WITH A HOMER, GARY SANCHEZ HITTING ALL THE HOME RUNS FROM THE BACKSTOP, RIGHT? URSHELA HIT THE HOMER. NICE PLACE IN THE OUTFIELD. JUDGE WITH A GREAT THROW TO SECOND BASE. URSULA LATE IN THE GAME, NICE PICKUP. I JUST FEEL LIKE THE DAY GETS SO MUCH TOUGHER ALL THE WAY AROUND THE DIAMOND. THEY ARE IN A POSITION TO WIN A GAME EVERY NIGHT BECAUSE THEY’VE GOT DIFFERENT GUYS CONTRIBUTING ALL THE TIME. >>A GUT CHECK WIN FOR THE YANKEES BECAUSE LABOR TOREZ AND GARY SANCHEZ, TWO OF THE HOTTEST PLAYERS IN THE LINEUP, THEY’RE NOT PLAYING. REMIND WITH THE GAME-TYING HOMER IN THE BOTTOM OF THE SEVENTH AND THINK ABOUT WHAT A GUT CHECK WIN THIS WAS FOR THE YANKEES WHEN HE GIVES OF THAT THREE-RUN HOMER IN THE TOP HALF OF THE SEVENTH-INNING. THINK THIS COULD BE A BAD LOSS, LOOKING AT JUSTIN VERLANDER ON SUNDAY. BUT THAT’S JUST NOT THE M.O. RIGHT NOW FOR THIS SURGING YANKEE TEAM. IT SEEMS TO BE A DIFFERENT GUY EVERY NIGHT THAT’S PLAYING UNBELIEVABLE BASEBALL, AND FOR THE FIRST TIME ALL YEAR, REALLY STARTING TO DISTANCE THEMSELVES FROM THE OTHER TEAMS WITHIN THIS DIVISION. >>HOW DO YOU THINK THEY WILL DO THE REST OF THE SEASON TALK ABOUT SEPARATION IN THE A.L. EAST. YOU THINK IT’S OVER NOW?>>I’M NOT WILLING TO SAY IT’S OVER. THERE IS A LOT OF BASEBALL. THAT SAID, RIGHT NOW, WHO IS THE TEAM TO BEAT IN THE A.L. EAST? IT’S AN EASY CALL FOR ME. IT’S THE NEW YORK YANKEES. THEY ARE THE MOST COMPLETE TEAM IN THIS DIVISION AND YOU HAVE TO ALSO CONSIDER THE FACT THEY ARE GOING TO ADD TO THIS TEAM. THEY’RE GOING TO BRING IN ANOTHER STARTING PITCHER AND I’M EXPECT IN THE YANKEES COULD BE IN THE MARKET FOR ANOTHER RELIEVER. THE WAY THIS TEAM IS GOING TO HAVE TO DEAL WITH DELL AND THE CHANCES. BUT THE WAY AARON BOONE AND COMPANY UTILIZE THIS BULLPEN, YOU CAN’T HAVE ENOUGH HELP IN THAT BULLPEN. >>IF THEY ARE GOING TO ADD, WE’RE ALREADY TALKING ABOUT A TEAM THAT’S 19-10 AGAINST TEAMS THAT ARE .500 OR BETTER. SO THEY’RE BEATING GOOD TEENS.>>SO MUCH FOR THAT NARRATIVE, YANKEES CAN’T BEAT WINNING TEAMS. FORGET ABOUT THAT.>>EXACTLY. THEY’RE AND A GREAT POSITION. I THINK THEY DO NEED ROTATION HELP, DEFINITELY J.J. AND I THINK THEY’VE GOT THE PIECES IN THE MINORS TO DO IT. BUT YOU HAD THAT IN, YIKES FOR THE REST OF THE AMERICAN LEAGUE.>>THE ONLY PROBLEM, SHORT SERIES IN THE PLAYOFFS, IS THAT STARTING ROTATION GOOD ENOUGH? THAT’S THE ONLY QUESTION I HAVE. THEY’LL BE ABLE TO ANSWER. LET’S GO BACK TO THE STATS. A BIT OF A LIGHTNING ROD, GETS A BAD RAP. FIRST RBI OF THE SEASON HERE. HERE IS A GUY THAT WAS AN AND L M. 59 HOME RUNS IN 2017. HIT 38 LAST YEAR. IS THAT BAD RAP WARRANTED, WE’LL START WITH YOU>>I THINK GIANCARLO STANTON DESERVES A LITTLE BIT OF A BAD RAP FOR THE WAY HE PLAYED IN THE POSTSEASON LAST YEAR. WHEN YOU COME OVER FROM THE MIAMI MARLINS, YOU’RE THE REIGNING MVP, YOU’RE GOING TO BE HELD TO A DIFFERENT STANDARD THAN JUST A JOHNNY-COME-LATELY WHO IS COMING UP TO THE NEW YORK YANKEES. HAD — IT HAPPENED TO REGGIE JACKSON, IT HAPPENED TO ALEX RODRIGUEZ. ANYBODY WHO IS GOING TO SAY THE YANKEES ARE A BETTER TEAM WITHOUT GIANCARLO STANTON, THAT’S AN ODD ARGUMENT. LET’S LEAVE IT AT THAT. THIS GUY IS A PREMIER PLAYER. BUT YOU KNOW THIS. WHEN YOU’RE PLAYING FOR THE NEW YORK YANKEES, IT’S ABOUT WHAT YOU DO IN THE MONTH OF OCTOBER. I’LL SAY THIS TO STANTON. THOSE WERE BIG BOY AT-BATS WITH RUNNERS ON BASE, PRESLEY IS ONE OF THE PREMIER RELIEVERS IN THE AMERICAN LEAGUE. THAT’S A REAL STEP IN THE RIGHT DIRECTION FOR STANTON.>>THERE YOU GO, IT’S THE CLUTCH. LAST YEAR IN THE PLAYOFFS WE SAW THAT HE COULDN’T CATCH UP TO THE HEATER IN THE PLAYOFFS WHEN THEY KNEW HOW TO PITCH THEM IN THE SAME EXACT SPOT IN THE PLAYOFFS.>>I’M DELIGHTED THAT J.J. BROUGHT UP THE NAME ALEX RODRIGUEZ WHEN HE WAS TALKING BECAUSE I FEEL LIKE STANTON HAS BECOME THE YANKEES NEW A-ROD. I FEEL LIKE A LOT OF THEIR FANS WANT ANOTHER 8-ROD. THEY WANT SOME GUY TO FOCUS ON AND — WE WANT THEM TO WIN BUT ONLY IF STANTON DOESN’T DO IT. IT’S RIDICULOUS. I DON’T GET IT. THIS GUY WITH A HUGE PART OF A BIG YOUR LAST YEAR. LEAD THE TEAM IN HOME RUNS LAST YEAR. BY THE WAY, THAT TEAM SET THE ALL-TIME RECORD OF HOME RUNS, J.J. I JUST DON’T GET IT. WHILE OTHER GUYS WERE HURT, HE WAS A ROCK IN THAT LINEUP, PLAYING HURT, INCIDENTALLY. SO HIS PRODUCTION WAS PROBABLY AFFECTED BY THAT. I FEEL LIKE THIS GUY HAS SO MUCH TO OFFER THIS TEAM AND FANS ARE JUST LIKE OH, STANTON.>>BUT YOU GUYS KNOW THAT YOU HAVE TO PERFORM IN OCTOBER. >>STRIKEOUTS, THEY HAVE IN. IT’S HAPPENING ALL ACROSS THE GAME. EPIDEMIC. YOU DO HAVE TO PERFORM IN OCTOBER. I’M NOT DEFENDING HIS OCTOBER RESUME FROM LAST YEAR, BUT THAT WAS NOT A GREAT PLAYOFFS BY THEM, AND I’M SURE IT’S GOING TO BE BETTER WHEN THEY GET THERE THIS YEAR. BUT I THINK THE OVERWHELMING DISDAIN FOR STANTON IN THIS TOWN IS JUST STUNNING, BECAUSE HE’S A PHENOMENAL PLAYER.>>HE WON AND MVP, SO HE SHOWED YOU IN MIAMI WHAT HE’S CAPABLE OF DOING. BUT WHEN YOU TALK ABOUT YANKEE PLAYERS, WHEN YOU TALK ABOUT A YANKEE PLAYER WHO IS NOT HOMEGROWN. IF HE’S A HOMEGROWN GUY, YOU GUYS KNOW THIS, THEY’RE ALWAYS GOING TO GET THE BENEFIT OF THE DOUBT FROM THE FAN BASE. THAT’S JUST THE WAY IT WORKS. AARON JUDGE COMES BACK, AND WHAT IS HE, LIKE 0 FOR 6, 0 FOR 7, NOBODY TALKS ABOUT IT BECAUSE EVERY YANKEE FAN LOVES AARON JUDGE.>>STANTON STRIKES OUT FIVE TIMES IN ONE OF HIS FIRST GAMES AND HE’S GETTING BOOED ALREADY BY YANKEE FANS LAST YEAR. IT’S RIDICULOUS.>>YOU THINK BACK TO THE DOING THE FIRST WEEK OR TWO OF THE YEAR, SURE. GETTING BOOED IN THE POSTSEASON LAST YEAR, THE AT-BAT HE HAD IN THE NINTH-INNING WHEN IT FELT LIKE EVERY YANKEE IN GAY FOUR HAD REALLY GOOD AT-BATS. YOU’RE GOING TO UNDERSTAND THE YANKEE FANS GOING AFTER GIANCARLO STANTON. STANTON NEEDS TO HAVE THESE BIG GAMES. NEEDS TO DELIVER WITH RUNNERS ON BASE, AND WHEN YOU ARE FACING JUSTIN VERLANDER, THIS CONSTITUTES A TEAM YOU’VE GOT TO BEAT IN THE POSTSEASON. >>A BAD SEASON FOR HIM, .270, 38 HOME RUNS, 100 RBIs. >>BAD OCTOBER, BABY GEICO SPORTS NIGHT COME AROUND TWO OF THE NFL DRAFT, BLOCKBUSTERS GO DOWN, P.K. SUBBAN, DETAILS ON WHERE HE’S HEADED AFTER THE BREAK. PLUS, DAN HURLEY AND THE UCONN HUSKIES ARE MOVING CONFERENCES YET AGAIN. WE’LL TELL YOU WHY FANS WILL BE QUITE HAPPY TO SEE WHERE THEY LANDED, WHEN WE RETURN. (VO)

SANTINI AND DAVIES AND TWO SECOND ROUND DRAFT PICKS FOR THE SUPERSTAR PKC BEEN HUGE PICKUP AS THE DEVIL SELECTED JACKIE WAS NUMBER ONE OVERALL. EVER SINCE UCONN LEFT THE BIG EAST FOR THE AMERICAN ATHLETIC CONFERENCE, A LOT OF PEOPLE ALWAYS FELT THEY’D FIND THEIR WAY BACK HOME AT SOME POINT. ACCORDING TO REPORTS, THAT IS GOING TO HAPPEN AS SOON AS NEXT YEAR. UCONN AN ORIGINAL MEMBER IN 1979, WILL REJOIN THE BIG EAST IN 2020. AN OFFICIAL ANNOUNCEMENT COULD COME NEXT WEEK. THE HUSKIES WILL REJOIN THE BIG EAST IN BASKETBALL AND OTHER SPORTS. QUESTIONS ABOUT THE FOOTBALL PROGRAM. THE BIG EAST DOES NOT HAVE FOOTBALL. IT’S UNLIKELY UCONN WILL STAY IN THE AAC IN JUST FOOTBALL. GOING TO THE FIESTA BOWL AFTER THE 2010 SEASON WHEN THEY WERE MEMBERS OF THE BIG EAST, THE HUSKIES ARE 28-69 IN THE AMERICAN. COMING UP, AFTER THE BREAK, WE WILL TAKE A LOOK BACK AT THE OFFENSIVE EXPLOSION BY THE METS SATURDAY. ONE OF THE TOP TEAMS IN THE MLB. PETE ALONSO HAD A LITTLE SOMETHING TO DO WITH IT.>>GEICO SPORTS NIGHT IS BROUGHT TO YOU BY — Thanks for theng, Capt! I’ve never been in
one of these before, even though GEICO has been- Ohhh. Ooh ohh here we go, here we go. You got cut off there,
what were you saying? Oooo. Oh no no. Maybe that GEICO has been
proudly serving the military for over 75 years? Is that what you

FRAZIER GETS ONE IN THE AIR TO LEFT FIELD. BACK AT THE WALL AND OUT OF HERE. TODD FRAZIER WITH HIS SECOND HOME RUN OF THE SERIES. AND HE LINES THIS ONE TOWARD LEFT CENTER FIELD. SCHWARBER DIVES, CAN’T GET IT. McNEIL PULLS INTO SECOND, HIS FIFTH CONSECUTIVE MULTIPLE HIT GAME. HIS THIRD RBI OF THE DAY AND IT’S 6-0, NEW YORK. >>ZACK WHEELER THROUGH SEVEN INNINGS. WORKED OUT A FIRST AND SECOND INNING TROUBLE. THEN HE RETIRED 15 IN A ROW. A RUN ON FIVE HITS, FIVE STRIKEOUTS. >>ALL RIGHT, NOW, PETE ALONSO JUST CAN’T BE TOUCHED RIGHT NOW. HE’S GOT THE MOST HOME RUNS BEFORE THE ALL-STAR BREAK FOR AN N.L. ROOKIE, DATING BACK TO 1933. HE SHOULD STRETCH THAT GAP EVEN MORE IF HE DOESN’T LET UP. THREE PLAYERS AND 21 HOMERS INCLUDING FORMER MET DAVE KINGMAN.>>OUR QUICK NOTE BEFORE WE GO, HAVE SOME FUN SATURDAY AFTERNOON ON THE CALL WITH MY GOD, THERE IS.
