BreakingT

No hitter in baseball has been hotter than Giancarlo Stanton lately. The Yankees’ DH was previously in the midst of an awful start to the 2021 season, batting just .158/.238/.333 as the Yankees began a road trip in Cleveland on April 22nd. He’d gone deep three times, but those homers made up a third of his total hits — he was 9-for-57 with 21 strikeouts.

After a day out of the lineup though, Stanton returned on April 23rd with a pair of long homers as part of a 5-4 victory. That kicked off a hitting streak that has now reached 12 consecutive games — contests in which he’s hit a remarkable .481/.509/.904. In just a couple weeks, he’s increased his triple slash to .312/.364/.606 and grabbed the team lead in homers with nine (and one off the American League lead).

Perhaps not coincidentally, the Yankees are playing a lot better thanks to Stanton’s red-hot bat. They were 7-11 on April 23rd, and after an 9-4 stretch, they’ve jumped back over .500 for the first time since the start of the season. They’ll hope to continue the good vibes later today as they welcome the Nationals for a three-game set at Yankee Stadium.

In the meantime, BreakingT has released a new t-shirt for Stanton! The “Big G” is extremely appropriate for the large man and the monster dingers he launches on a regular basis.

This shirt is an officially licensed product of the Major League Baseball Players Association and printed in America.
