Alex Rodriguez: Tom Brady is ‘a great guy’
Rodriguez on J-Lo: ‘Jennifer destroyed the word ’no″
BOSTON (AP) — The Bronx Bombers lived up to their nickname by hitting another big number. A couple of them, in fact.
Gleyber Torres and Giancarlo Stanton connected as the playoff-bound Yankees set the major league record for most home runs in a season, beating the Boston Red Sox 8-5 Saturday for their 100th win this year.
"I'm happy for them. They work really hard at their craft, and it's a result of a lot of people having success," manager Aaron Boone said.
BOSTON (AP) — Gleyber Torres homered in the fourth inning for the New York Yankees, claiming a Major League Baseball record with their 265th home run of the season.
Torres' drive to right off Boston's Eduardo Rodriguez moved New York past the 1997 Seattle Mariners for the most in a single season in MLB history. It was Torres' 24th home run of the season, which sailed over the head of Blake Swihart at the bullpen wall to put the Yankees up 4-1 against the Red Sox.
A look at what's happening around the majors today:
The New York Yankees take aim at baseball's single-season home run record, a day after tying the mark of 264 set by the 1997 Seattle Mariners. The Yankees connected four times Friday night in Boston, with Aaron Judge hitting the homer that matched a Mariners club that included Ken Griffey Jr., Alex Rodriguez, Jay Buhner and Edgar Martinez.
NEW YORK (AP) — Yankees slugger Giancarlo Stanton joined the 300-home run club Thursday night, connecting for a two-run drive in the third inning against the Detroit Tigers.
Stanton ended a 10-game homerless drought and became the 147th player to reach the mark, 11 of them active. He did it in 1,119 games, making him the fifth-fastest to hit the milestone behind Ralph Kiner, Ryan Howard, Juan Gonzalez and Alex Rodriguez.
NEW YORK (AP) — Didi Gregorius leads the major leagues with 27 RBIs and has eight home runs in 22 games, totals matched previously in Yankees history by only Babe Ruth in 1921 and Alex Rodriguez in 2007.
Perhaps with a few more big nights, the promotional people at Yankee Stadium will spell his name correctly.
TAMPA, Fla. (AP) — Alex Rodriguez thinks the New York Yankees' "breathtaking" offense could break records this season.
Rodriguez arrived at spring training Monday and had high praise for a lineup led by Giancarlo Stanton, Aaron Judge, Gary Sanchez and Didi Gregorius. A-Rod is a team special adviser who has worked with a number of New York's younger players.
"Happy to be back and see so much talent," Rodriguez said Monday night. "It's breathtaking."
Shortstop offers depth and diversity this season for fantasy baseball owners, who will have the opportunity to use a top 30 pick or significant auction funds on a quartet of players that can become cornerstones of success.
TAMPA, Fla. (AP) — Five years after claiming the Yankees were trying to run him out of baseball, Alex Rodriguez is remaining with New York as a revered elder statesman.
New York said Sunday that A-Rod will be a special adviser.
MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Jennifer Lopez raised money for Hurricane Maria victims in Puerto Rico, celebrated an anniversary with beau Alex Rodriguez and covered Prince songs at a pre-Super Bowl concert in Minneapolis.
Lopez headlined the DIRECTV NOW Super Saturday Night concert at Nomadic Live at The Armory, working the stage with sizzling and sharp dance moves and singing hits like "I'm Real" and "Love Don't Cost a Thing."
Starting his new gig as ESPN's Sunday night game analyst, Alex Rodriguez won't complain about endless pitching changes and trips to the mound.
"I'm biased, I'm probably the wrong person to ask," he said Friday. "I can watch a five-hour game."
Rodriguez was released by the New York Yankees in August 2016 following 696 home runs, three AL MVP awards, a season-long drug suspension and enough tabloid headlines to fill a floor at the Hall of Fame.
BRISTOL, Conn. (AP) — Alex Rodriguez is taking over for Aaron Boone again, this time moving into the ESPN booth for Sunday Night Baseball.
ESPN announced Tuesday that A-Rod was joining its crew as an analyst. The former star slugger will become a rare, two-network announcer — he will continue as a studio analyst for Fox Sports in the postseason.
Rodriguez fills the ESPN spot held last season by Boone, hired last month to manage the New York Yankees.
LOS ANGELES (AP) — Jennifer Lopez says a fire alarm went off during her first date with Alex Rodriguez, literally.

NEW YORK (AP) — Jennifer Lopez, her ex-husband Marc Anthony and her current boyfriend Alex Rodriguez have raised more than $35 million for Puerto Rico hurricane relief.

About $9 million was raised via the Oct. 14 benefit show "One Voice: Somos Live! A Concert for Disaster Relief," which the trio hosted.

JLo donates $1 million to hurricane relief
NEW YORK (AP) — Jennifer Lopez has pledged $1 million toward hurricane relief efforts in her family's native Puerto Rico.
Lopez announced during a news conference with New York Gov.

Lopez says she's also enlisting the help of her boyfriend, former New York Yankees star Alex Rodriguez, and her ex-husband, Marc Anthony.
ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) — Former major league baseball player Alex Rodriguez knows a lot about home runs. It turns out he also knows a lot about homes of the real estate kind.
Rodriguez has become a real estate investor. He is speaking Tuesday before real estate professionals in Orlando ahead of the Florida Realtors' convention and trade expo.
Rodriguez's private investment firm owns apartment buildings in the Mid-Atlantic region, Florida and Texas.
ANAHEIM, California (AP) — Andrelton Simmons drove in three runs, including a go-ahead two-run homer and Albert Pujols went 3 for 4 with two RBIs as the Los Angeles Angels rallied for a 7-3 victory over the Boston Red Sox in Major League Baseball on Saturday.
Simmons hit his 10th homer of the season to left and put the Angels ahead 4-3 in the third inning after falling behind early. Pujols doubled to score Yunel Escobar and Mike Trout to start the four-run burst.
NEW YORK (AP) — Television viewership for the All-Star Game ticked up slightly from last year's record low.
The American League's 2-1, 10-inning win at Miami on Tuesday got a 5.5 national rating, 11 share and average audience of 9.28 million on Fox. Viewership was up 7 percent from last year's 4-2 AL win in San Diego, which received a 5.4 rating and 10 share on Fox, where its average audience was 8.71 million.
A look at what's happening all around the majors today:
A year after the All-Star Game drew its lowest TV rating ever, Major League Baseball will see how this telecast fared.
Fox tried a few new things: Bryce Harper and George Springer wore microphones while playing the outfield and bantered with the broadcasters, and leadoff men Jose Altuve and Charlie Blackmon did interviews just seconds before they stepped into the batter's box.
