1972 Making his last career start, Wade Blasingame's American League debut for the Yankees is an inauspicious one, as the Tigers go deep three consecutive times in the first frame. The opening inning home runs by Aurelio Rodriguez, Al Kaline, and Willie Horton power Detroit over New York, 5-2.
2008 In a 15-6 Mets victory over the Yankees at the Stadium, Carlos Delgado, with a double, three-run homer, and a grand slam, establishes a new team record with 9 RBIs in one game. The first baseman, who breaks Dave Kingman’s 1976 club mark, also surpasses Sky King on the all-time home run list with the first of his two homers, moving into 34th place with his 443rd career round-tripper.
