SAN DIEGO (AP) — Giancarlo Stanton has homered in every one of New York’s four postseason games to tie a franchise feat previously accomplished by only Lou Gehrig and Reggie Jackson. For the first time in his three postseasons with New York, the Yankees’ big-money slugger is putting on a fantastic power display. After hitting a grand slam in Game 1 of the AL Division Series, he launched two more homers in Game 2 against Tampa Bay — including a massive three-run shot. As beautiful as it all was, Stanton’s power wasn’t enough to stop the Rays from tying the best-of-five series.
