Most notably, Sanchez launched two home runs -- the fourth and fifth of his brief postseason career. That included one off David Price and this monster shot against Eduardo Rodriguez that sailed 479 feet, according to Statcast's projections.
Sanchez's dinger now serves as the longest home run in Fenway Park's Statcast era history:
Gary Sanchez's 479-ft HR is the longest hit at Fenway Park in the Statcast era (since 2015).— Katie Sharp (@ktsharp) October 7, 2018
Previous longest was 469 ft by Hanley Ramirez on April 29, 2017.
You can follow all of the action in.
Sanchez's multi-home run game is the third in Yankees postseason history against the Red Sox, joining Hideki Matsui (2004) and Jason Giambi (2003):

Sanchez also had a testy exchange with Red Sox reliever Ryan Brasier. Brasier took exception to Sanchez stepping out of the box, informing him of such with -- let's say some choice words.
In the end, though, Sanchez was the one who got the last word in -- twice.
