Aaron Hicks off the foul pole.
And the Yankees stay alive.
Here’s the video:
AARON HICKS SAID SEE YOU LATER‼️
4 runs in the 1st off Verlander 😱

The inning went like this:
LeMahieu hits a solo HR
Stanton strikes out
And then Hicks. Full count. The pitch from Verlander. And a shot doink’d off the foul pole.
This Aaron Hicks bat drop?

In front of the home crowd, a loss meaning elimination for the Yankees, a 1-1 game, and a just deep enough line drive to right field sets the place off. The angel of jubilation on one shoulder, smiling above that devil of nervous anxiety, slumped over on the other.

And so Aaron Hicks is the hero, with the biggest hit of his life.
And he almost wasn’t there to make it happen.
Seriously, a few weeks ago Aaron Hicks was sitting on his couch thinking about the potential of Tommy John surgery. Today he played a significant role in extending the Yankees’ season. Really wild!

The Yankees stay alive, for at least another day.
With two home runs in the first—for the first time ever:
This is the 405th postseason game in New York Yankees history.
Never before today had they hit two home runs in the first inning.

Four runs. Verlander shellacked. And they hang on to win by that same score.
An entire game, decided by the first inning.
Yankees win, 4-1.
