Hiroki Kuroda gave up one run and six hits and Robinson Canot got three hits as a Yankees split squad defeated the Phillies.
One inning, 12 runs, 40 minutes and 70 pitches.
Those were just some of the wild numbers in a record-setting start
for the New York Yankees. Robinson Cano, Nick Swisher and the Yankees broke loose for 12
runs in the first inning Saturday night, setting a franchise mark
en route to a 17-3 rout of the Baltimore Orioles that completed a
painfully embarrassing sweep of their split doubleheader.
CC Sabathia came within one out of his second complete game in three starts, Alex Rodriguez hit a go-ahead two-run homer and Robinson Cano also went deep, leading the New York Yankees to a 3-2 victory over the Los Angeles Angels on Saturday night.
Bartolo Colon pitched a four-hitter for his first shutout in nearly five years and Mark Teixeira homered in the first inning to help the New York Yankees beat the Oakland Athletics for the eighth straight time, 5-0 on Monday.
