Stadium Slamfest: Yanks Hit 3 Grand Slams vs Oakland, Win 22-9

First team in MLB History to Accomplish Feat in One Game

(New York, NY) – Given their rich history it seems only fitting that the Yanks (78-50) would add another historical fact to the books.  With Cano, Martin and Granderson all going deep with the bases loaded the Bombers are now the only team in almost 200,000 major league games to ever do so in one.  And it came at Yankee Stadium on a day when they trailed 7-1 early.    All told there were 21 hits, Jeter moved into 21st place all time for career hits (passing Rickey Henderson) and Jorge Posada finished the game at 2nd base.  The Yanks took 2-3 from the A’s.  Boone Logan (4-2) got the win.

Notes:  A-Rod returned to action from the DL with 2 hits.  Phil Hughes was not sharp and was knocked out early.  The Yanks move on for 5-game set in Baltimore and have major rains to battle with Hurricane Irene scheduled to hit the area on Saturday night and Sunday.

  1. The Yankees salvage one game from the A’s on Thursday. A.J. Burnett is frustrating and keep getting bombed in August again.
