Garret Anderson drove in ten runs as the Angels beat the Yankees wait TEN RBI? He had ten RBI. Holy crap. Only 12 people in history have ever done that. Think about that. Fewer people have, like, walked on the moon or been president. More people have enjoyed According to Jim than driven in double-digit runs in a major league game. Pretty impressive, and it takes a lot for me to say that because I fucking hate the Angels.
Anyway, Anderson got it done with a two-run double in the first, an RBI double in the second, a three-run homer in the third, and a grand slam in the sixth. He also turned in a complete choke job in the 8th inning, when he blew a chance to break the major league record for RBI in a game when he grounded out with two men on base with the score 18-5. What a cowardly choke artist.
The Yankees, for their part, appeared to try part of the night, scoring four runs in the top of the ninth before getting sent home. Alex Rodriguez had two solo home runs to push his major league-leading total to 42. Mike Mussina gave up seven earned runs in 1.2 innings to take the loss.
Other MLB scores: Carlos Beltran drives in mere 5 runs in Mets' win over Padres. Pussy… Pretty much everyone on the team homers as Rockies pound Pirates 9-2… Tribe musters just one hit off rookie Jair Jurrjens (Jergens?) as Tigers hang tight in AL Central.
