Nine times. The Yankees scored nine times in the bottom of the second inning Monday, putting the game out of reach very quickly against Clay Buchholz and the Red Sox.
Nine runs is a big deficit for any team to overcome, but the task seemed especially daunting considering the lineup Boston trotted out this time around. It was the kind of lineup that would almost need a roll call in order to keep all the names straight.
In any case, NESN Nation's Dan Duquette is awarding Robinson Cano our "Bueller? Bueller?" player of the game after this one. Who's yours?
