Double Header ~ Game 2 ~ Saturday, July 30, 2011

~~ Yankees 17, Orioles 3 ~~

Of the 17 runs scored in this game, 12 were in the first innings. The Yankees set a franchise record in this game, they have never scored 12 in the first inning before. This was also the second game of a double header. Yeah, they were supposed to lose this game. I guess they didn’t get the memo.

Despite having a (to start) 12 run lead, Nova pitched like the game depended on every pitch he threw only giving up 2 runs, Ayala gave up one and Soriano, fresh from the D.L. pitched a scoreless 9th.

Cano went 5 for 5, Swisher and Jones went deep. It was kind of fun keeping track of all those runs.
