Even for the New York Yankees’ storied franchise, Tuesday night will go down as an unforgettable one for the Yankees and their fan base.

First, Aaron Judge crushed his 60th home run of the season, tying Babe Ruth for second all-time in American League history. That trails only Roger Maris, who hit 61 homers for the Yankees in 1961.

The Judge home run led off the ninth inning, but it still left the Yankees trailing the Pittsburgh Pirates 8-5.

Well, the Yankees loaded the bases with no outs, and another monstrous slugger came to the plate in the form of Giancarlo Stanton. And Stanton hit a walk-off grand slam to give the Yankees an incredible 9-8 comeback victory:


What’s also insane is that it’s the third time Stanton has hit a walk-off grand slam in his career. He’s only the fourth player in major-league history to do that.

It’s also the fourth walk-off grand slam when trailing by three in Yankees history- and it’s the second time they’ve done it this season!

Here’s a look at how the baseball world is reacting to Stanton hitting a walk-off grand slam to cap off a crazy, historic ninth inning for the New York Yankees (and another heartbreaking night for the lowly Pittsburgh Pirates):
