:o: Boston put up a 10 spot in the bottom of the 1st against Texas. Ok, Baseball historians, does Ortiz tie or break any 1st inning records here?

Lowell singled to center. Bay safe at first on fielding error by third baseman R.Vazquez, Lowell to second. Lowell stole third. Bay stole second. Lowrie doubled to left, Lowell scored, Bay scored. Crisp flied out to center fielder Hamilton. Cash walked on a full count. J.Drew singled to right, Lowrie scored, Cash to third. Pedroia infield single to second, Cash scored, J.Drew to second. Ortiz homered to center on a 0-0 count, J.Drew scored, Pedroia scored. Youkilis struck out.

Bret Boone and Mike Cameron both homered twice in the 1st inning (May 2, 2001) off Rauch and Garland, but neither guy even had six RBI for the game, let alone the inning.

Retrosheet says they were the 1st and 2nd AL hitters to ever homer twice in the 1st inning. Is Ortiz now the 3rd?

While that was a great inning by Big Papi, it isn't what Fernando Tatis did...

Tatis had two slams in an inning.

Ortiz's 6 RBIs in the first inning ties an AL record and is a career high for Big Papi.

Ortiz's 16th HR of the season, second of the inning, ties a major league record for homers in an inning and it's the fourth time it's happened in Red Sox history. Nomar Garciaparra was the last to do it, July 23, 2002, against Tampa Bay.

Are you trying to say that Byrd is better than Zink? :redneck

BTW - Yankees took the lead. Go Nady........

Amazing. Boston has a 10 run lead and needs Papelbon to save.

NESN will replay this gem all winter.

Ortiz would have hit his third of the night but a fan interfered.I didn't see the game or the replay. How does fan interference prevent a home run? I've seen fans interfere with a ball that would have remained in play, but not one that would have been a homer. It's either over the wall or it isn't.

Saw the highlights after hearing the boxscore on the radio yesterday. Crazy ass game. Marlon Byrd has been doing it over the last few weeks.

Tatis had two slams in an inning.

Bill Mueller had two slams in an inning from opposite sides of the plate...

Mueller's two grand slams weren't in the same inning. Fernando Tatis is the only player to have hit two grand slams in a single inning.

The game tied the American League record for most runs in a game set over 50 years ago by Philadelphia and Boston.

Amazing stat is starting pitcher Scott Feldman was charged with 6 earned runs and 12 total and did not get credit for the loss.

Games like that are fun to watch as long as your team isn't involved.
