Vladimir Guerrero Jr. delivered the best offensive performance ever seen in the 2022 MLB season, and he did it at the legendary Yankee Stadium.
The Toronto Blue Jays star was the star of the night on Wednesday, April 13, when he went 4-4 with 3 home runs and 4 RBIs, a key performance in the Canadian team’s victory over the New York Yankees, with a final score of 6 runs to 4.
It is important to highlight that the Dominican’s first two homers of the game came against the Yankees’ ace Gerrit Cole. In addition, the 23-year-old had to overcome a finger injury in the second inning, when his hand was stepped on by Aaron Hicks of the opposing team.
After this memorable work with the bat, “Vladdy Jr.” in the 2022 MLB season has a line of 4 home runs and 8 RBIs, with a .391 average and an OPS of 1.374.
With this result, the Blue Jays improved their record to 4 wins and 2 losses, to move into first place in the American League East Division.
On the Yankees’ side, they added their third loss in the last 4 games, after starting the 2022 campaign with two thrilling victories over the Boston Red Sox.
