Sept 6: Blue Jays 8, Yankees 0 — Guerreros join Fielders
Vladimir Guerrero Jr. continues to make history with his breakout 2021 season, and the 22-year-old star launched his 40th home run of the season on Monday afternoon at Yankee Stadium. Not only did Guerrero become the youngest Blue Jays hitter to 40 homers and one of just 10 in franchise history, but he and his father are now one of just two father-son duos to hit 40 home runs, joining Prince Fielder and Cecil Fielder. Vlad Sr. hit 42 home runs when he was 24 with the Montreal Expos and reached the 40-homer plateau once more the next season, totaling 449 in his Hall of Fame career. Vlad Jr. has a long way to go, but he is now third in the Majors in home runs this season behind Salvador Perez (41) and Shohei Ohtani (43).
