Anderson puts up double digits in RBIs in one game

Garret Anderson set an Angels franchise record tonight with a 10 RBI game against the Yankees Tuesday night. The Angels won the game 18-9, the most runs scored by the Angels against the Yankees in team history.

His night:

  • 1st inning: 2-RBI double
  • 2nd inning: 1-RBI double
  • 3rd inning: 3-RBI home run
  • 5th inning: Ground out to second
  • 6th inning: Grand slam home run
  • 8th inning: Ground out to short with two runners

Anderson missed a chance to tie the AL record for most RBIs in a game which is 11 by Tony Lazzeri on May 24, 1936 when the Yankees defeated the A's 25-2. Lazzeri hit two grand slams in that game.

The NL record for RBIs in a game is 12 which was done by two St. Louis Cardinal players. One was Jim Bottomley on September 16, 1924, a 17-3 win over the Dodgers, and by Mark Whiten in the second game of a doubleheader on September 7, 1993 against the Reds, which the Cardinals won 15-2. Whiten hit four home runs in that game.

Vladimir Guerrero held the previous Angels record for RBIs in a game with 9, which he did against the Red Sox on June 2, 2004.

Besides Anderson and Whiten, four other players in the last 50 years have had 10 RBIs in a game: Alex Rodriguez (who did it against the Angels and hit two more home runs tonight), Nomar Garciaparra, Fred Lynn, and Reggie Jackson.

Angels pitcher Marcus Gwyn gave up four runs while earning his first major league save.

He is the 22nd pitcher to pick up a save while giving up four or more runs since the save became an official stat in 1969.

I remember A-rod's game -- last season, right? He was unstoppable. I'm sure the Yankee fans thought, "Tonight, we got off the schneid. Tonight we turn it around against the Angels."

Guess not.

A-Rod's 10 RBI game was in 2005.

Does one really deserve a "save" when giving up 4 runs.

Pitchers don't deserve wins when they give up 10 runs, but they do anyway:

Anderson now has 50 ribbies on the season, and nabbed 20% of them in 1 game.

That 1-game % is gonna be hard to top for semi-regular players.
