Yankees Mount A Historic Comeback

The Yankees found themselves down by 9 runs in the 6th inning, all hope was lost, until the Yankees bats finally woke up in Fenway. The Yankees put up 15 unanswered runs in route to a historic comeback and a 15-9 victory, their 9th of the season and second this series. The Yankees will be looking for the sweep today in Fenway. 

Nick Swisher, pictured above, hit a grand slam to get the party started for the Yankees as well as having a go ahead two run double. Mark Texeira homered twice in the campaign thus putting to bed another slow April. Both Swisher and Texeira had six RBIs each, tying a franchise record for a single game. The Yankees obliterated the Boston bullpen putting up a seven spot in each of the 7th and 8th innings, sending up a total of 23 batters to the plate combined. Russell Martin added a two run double to help the Yankees en route to the victory. 

In an already forgotten side note Freddy Garcia threw a total of 48 pitches, accounting for 5 of the 27 outs the Yankees needed to win. With a Michael Pineda set back Andy Pettitte cannot come back soon enough.
