2003 In a 10-3 victory over New York, the Red Sox score all their runs with the long ball, hitting a record seven home runs off the Yankees. Before today's Independence Day fireworks, the Bronx Bombers had given up six homers in a game four times, including twice to Boston (1997 and 1977) and the Indians (1970).
2006 Yankee owner George Steinbrenner's 76th birthday is less than festive when the Indians provide all of the fireworks in a 19-1 Independence Day rout over the Bronx Bombers. The victory is the Tribe's most lopsided victory at home since the 1950 team, scoring 14 first-inning runs, beat the Philadelphia A's at Cleveland Stadium, 21-2.
