With their backs to the wall in Game 5 of the ALCS, the New York Yankees responded in a legitimately historic way.

Down 3-1 to the Houston Astros in the ALCS and already trailing 1-0 in a decisive Game 5, the Yankees stepped in against Justin Verlander and set a new franchise mark. DJ LeMahieu led off the game with a home run, and later in the inning, Aaron Hicks hit a three-run shot off the right field foul pole to give the Yankees a 4-1 lead.
