While most of America was enjoying their Memorial Day on Monday, May 25th, there were many games around the MLB.
One of them being the Yankees-Royals game.
The Yankees came into the game, losing 9 of their last 10 games.
The pitcher for the Royals was aging righty, Jeremy Guthrie.
He did not throw a no hitter, perfect game, or anything close to that. In fact, he did not even pitch more than an inning. Guthrie pitched one inning and allowed 11 runs. ELEVEN!
That tied the MLB record for most earned runs in an inning. All of the home runs were via the long-ball. There were 3 3-run homers and a 2-run homer. The Yankees went on to win the game.
The Yankees esteem, heading into game 2 of the 3 game set.
And… Jeremy Guthries ERA.
