Yankees set club record with 12 runs in first inning


Nick Swisher hit a homer for the Yankees to two stripes in the first inning against the Baltimore Orioles in the closure of a doubleheader on Saturday, July 30, 2011 in New York. Imposed Yankees team record by scoring 12 runs in the first inning.

New York Yankees on Saturday imposed a franchise record with runs in the first inning by scoring 12 times against the Baltimore Orioles in the second game of a doubleheader.

Nick Swisher homered and drove in three to continue the match on after his performance in the opener. Robinson Cano hit a pair of RBI singles and the Yankees sent 16 batters to the plate in an offensive explosion that lasted 40 minutes.

New York shot 10 hits in their most productive episode from the 13 runs he scored in the eighth inning on June 21, 2005, against Tampa Bay.

Derek Jeter hit a two-run single in the second round bat, and that was it for Zach Britton starter, who had been recalled from the minors before the game. Britton was able to make just one out with a called third strike against Jeter to start the chapter.
