About the big inning…

The Indians just put together a 14-run inning against the Yankees in the second inning of today’s game.

In Indians history, the club has notched only one other 14-run inning . That happened in the first inning of a June 18, 1950 game against the Philadelphia A’s.

The 14 runs and 13 hits allowed by Chien-Ming Wang and Anthony Claggett were the most ever allowed by Yankee pitching in a single inning.

The half-inning last 37 minutes.

The last time a team allowed 14 runs in an inning came on June 27, 2003, when the Red Sox put up 14 against the Marlins in Fenway. Carl Pavano, now with the Tribe, got lit up in that one.

UPDATE: The five highest-scoring innings in Tribe history are as follows:

14 runs on April 18, 2009, at Yankees, second inning
14 runs on June 18, 1950, vs. Philadelphia A’s, first inning
13 runs on July 7, 1923, vs. Red Sox, sixth inning
13 runs on April 10, 1977, at Red Sox, eighth inning
12 runs on Sept. 10, 1999, at White Sox, sixth inning

This is bringing back lovely memories of an evening in 2004. Can’t wait for all the replays of Omar almost breaking the MLB record for hits in a game.

15-2 in the top of the 3rd. I like our chance to win our first series this year.

Oh and the Cavs are winning by 8 in the fourth. Good day in Cleveland sports. Too bad I am not expecting any good news from the browns.

Wow! GO INDIANS!

one of the most beautiful things ever seen.

Aren’t the Indians responsible for something like 6 of the worst 10 losses in Yankees history? Anthony, could we get a list?

hahahaha I really can’t stop laughing. Awesome game. And something that will probably be forgotten but great start by Fausto. Very encouraging.

I was at the game. It was as beautiful as it sounds.
