Watch: Up from Bikini Bottom, Gary Sanchez launches two homers to Goo Lagoon

In his 12th game of the season, rookie catcher and meowing-escargot Gary Sanchez put his stamp on Tuesday’s game. Before a downpour forced the contest into a rain delay, Sanchez took Blue Jays starter Marco Estrada deep twice in spectacular fashion. In the second inning, Sanchez put a solo shot into the bullpens in left-center field and then in the fourth he muscled the ball to the second deck in left field.

The second homer went 416 feet and left the bat at 110 mph, according to Statcast.

Tuesday was Sanchez’s first career multi-HR game and his third and fourth dingers of the season. The Yankees entered the night 5.5 games back of first-place Toronto. Baltimore, who is tied with the Blue Jays for first, plays the third-place Red Sox on Tuesday.
