Cleveland Indians score 14 runs in one inning

It was in a game this afternoon against the New York Yankees. From AP-

NEW YORK — The Cleveland Indians set the bar for Yankee Stadium’s new record book Saturday, scoring 14 runs in the second inning of a 22-4 victory.

Asdrubal Cabrera hit a grand slam and an RBI single in the second as the Indians chased struggling starter Chien-Ming Wang and set several marks that could stand for a while at New York’s swanky new home.

Mark DeRosa and Shin Soo-Choo each hit three-run homers, Travis Hafner, Grady Sizemore and Victor Martinez had solo shots and manager Eric Wedge earned his 500th victory. Jhonny Peralta had three hits and two RBIs after missing Friday’s 6-5 loss with a strained left elbow.


It was the most runs for the Indians since they beat New York 22-0 on Aug. 31, 2004, at the old Yankee Stadium. The 22 runs also tied the Yankees’ record for most allowed in a home game.

The 14 runs and 13 hits by the Indians in the second were the most allowed by the Yankees in an inning.

I can’t recall watching a professional baseball game where 10 runs scored in a inning.
