Anderson Drives in Ten Angels Beat Yankees 18-9


Los Angeles Angels left fielder Garrett Anderson had such an incredible game on Tuesday night that he made New York Yankees third baseman Alex Rodriguez who hit two home runs for the MLB lead at 42 an afterthought. Anderson drove in 10 RBI Tuesday night, enough to beat the Bronx Bombers by himself, but the Halos tacked on eight more runs and beat the Yankees 18-9. Anderson hit a grand slam, a three run blast, a two run double, and drove in his last RBI with another double all in the game's first six innings! He had a chance to tie the American League record, and possibly taken the Major League Record as he came to the plate with runners at first and third in the eighth, but grounded out. Anderson set a team record with ten RBI, became the 12th player in MLB history to accomplish the feat, the last player to do it ironically was A-Rod against the Angels in 2005. The American League record is 11 RBI for a game set by Yankees legend Tony Lazzeri in 1936. The Major League record is 12 accomplished by two different ST. Louis Cardinals players nearly 70 years apart; Jim Bottomley in 1924, and "Hard Hittin'" Mark Whiten in 1993.
