The Dominican first baseman became the first rookie to hit three home runs in a game against the Yankees, in the beating of the Texas Rangers 12-7 over New York. Eight days after veteran Steve Pearce of the Red Sox Boston, hit three home runs against the Yankees, Guzman did the feat and put an end to New York's four-game winning streak.

The 23-year-old first baseman took another turn in the eighth with the opportunity to tie the record for most home runs in a Major League game – no rookie has hit four – but struck out fanning against Chad Green. Guzmán's first homers went to Masahiro Tanaka and the third to AJ Cole. The three hits made him the first player in Texas to hit three homers in a game since his teammate, also Dominican Adrian Beltre, did it in 2012. Guzman became the first rookie of the Rangers to achieve the feat.
