TORONTO (AP) -- New York Yankees outfielder Alfonso Soriano needed just two pitches Tuesday night to hit his 399th and 400th home runs.

Soriano crushed a three-run home run into the fourth deck in left in the first inning, then hit a shot that bounced off the top of the left field wall and out in the third. Both homers came on the first pitch of the at-bat from Toronto Blue Jays left-hander J.A. Happ.

It is Soriano's sixth multihomer game this season and the 36th of his career.

The homers were his 27th and 28th of the season, and his 10th and 11th since being traded back to New York by the Chicago Cubs on July 26.
