DJ LeMahieu claims Major League batting title, Luke Voit takes the home run crown

DJ LeMahieu is the first man to win the batting title in both the National League and American League. The Yankees second baseman went 2-for-3 in the Yankees 5-0 loss to the Marlins Sunday to finish the 60-game season with a .364 batting average. Last year the 32-year-old finished eight points behind White Sox shortstop Tim Anderson for the title. In 2016, with the Rockies, LeMahieu won the National League batting title with a .348 average that led all of MLB that season.

Luke Voit, who went 0-for-3 and finished with 22 homers, claimed the first home run title for a Yankee since Alex Rodriguez in 2007. LeMahieu and Voit become the first teammates to win the batting and home run title in the same season since the Braves’ Eddie Mathews and Hank Aaron in 1959.
