Cleveland crushes the New York Yankees, 22 – 4, at New Yankee Stadium, scoring 14 runs in the 2nd inning, the most runs given up in an inning in Yankee history. Asdrubal Cabrera hits a grand slam, Mark DeRosa and Shin-Soo Choo add three-run home runs, and Travis Hafner, Grady Sizemore and Victor Martinez all connect for solo shots for the Indians. Yankee starter Chien-Ming Wang, who missed the second half of 2008 with a leg injury, is charged with 8 runs in 1 1/3 innings to raise his ERA for the year to 34.50. Making his major league debut, Anthony Claggett succeeds him but gives up 8 more runs in 1 2/3 innings.
