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
