11-run second inning gives Yankees 21-5 win over Rangers


After Chris Capuano pitched a horrendous inning, it seemed the Yankees were destined for a blow-out loss. However, in the second inning, the offense exploded, scoring 11 runs in a 21-5 win over the Texas Rangers in Global Life Park in Arlington, Texas.

Chase Headley started the 11-run rally with a RBI single. Brendan Ryan hit a two-run double, Jacoby Ellsbury hit a RBI single, Brett Gardner hit an RBI single, Alex Rodriguez hit a RBI double, Headley hit a RBI single, Didi Gregorius hit a three-run triple and Brendan Ryan hit a RBI double. In the top of the third, Chris Young hit a grand slam, in the fourth a run scored on an error, in the six Young hit an RBI double, followed by a John Ryan Murphy two-run double and Gardner sealed the deal in the ninth with a two-run home run.

Chris Capuano gave up five runs on three hits after retiring two batters. Diego Moreno pitched 5.1 scoreless innings and Adam Warren pitched three shut-out innings to get the save.

What’s Next?

    Someone please tell me how Warren earned a save when he came into a 19-5 game. I obviously don't understand the criteria that allows you to get a save in a 14 run game.
