The Yankees definitely set one baseball record Thursday and may have set a few more. No team had ever hit three grand slams in a game before the Yankees did in their 22-9 victory over Oakland. But things didn't start out well for New York. Phil Hughes was terrible and the A's actually led the game 7-1 after three innings. Robinson Cano brought the Yankees to within 1 with a grand slam in the fifth.
The Yankees batted around in the 5th and did so in the 6th, 7th and 8th, possibly a record. Russell Martin hit a slam in the 6th to put the Yankees in the lead and Curtis Granderson added one in the 8th. The game ended with Jorge Posada, who was making his first appearance at second base in 20 years, firing a throw over to first that Nick Swisher scooped to record the final out.
