Image of the Night

Giants

On this day in baseball history

2003:

In the 50-minute bottom of the first inning at Fenway Park against the Marlins, the Red Sox establish a major league record by scoring 10 runs before making an out. Lead-off hitter Johnny Damon, with a single, double and triple, ties a major league mark with three hits in an inning as the home team equals an American League record for most runs scored in the first frame with 14.
