Rookie first baseman Ronald Guzmán cranked three dingers to lead the Texas Rangers to a 12-7 lead over the New York Yankees on Friday night.

Hitting three homers in one game is always a spectacular feat for anyone,  and especially a rookie. Then consider that Ronald Guzmán is the first rookie to ever hit three homers in a game against the Yankees.

And he’s the first rookie to ever homer in their first four games against the Yankees.

The Yankees might rather see Mookie Betts at the plate than Guzmán at this point.

Oh, and he hit the three homers on Friday night in front of his family at Yankee Stadium. They were understandably quite ecstatic:

That’s a pretty special night at the ballpark for Ronald and the Guzmán family.
