The House that Ruth Built is long gone. How about Homer happy field? The Indians belted six home runs, including Asdrubal Cabrera's first career grand slam, to destroy the Yankees 22-4 Saturday.

ESPN's Buster Olney is quick to point out that the Yankees may have a real problem on their hands, with the way balls are flying out of the new stadium.

It didn't take the Indians long to get most of those runs Saturday. The Indians had a record setting second inning that featured 17 batters, 13 hits and 14 runs. Shin-Soo Choo had a three run home run. Cabrera had his slam. Grady Sizemore followed with a solo shot. Yankees starter Chien Ming Wang could have cried.

The inning set all kinds of records that Anthony Castrovince was so kind to write a story about.

Sheldon Ocker points out that the Indians don't beat the Yankees often. When they do though, its a beatdown

The New York Post loves to use the word "Doom" in its headlines and there it was again this morning: INDIANS' 14-RUN SECOND DOOMS YANKEES

Hey, I always like the New York Post headlines. So i'll post a few more...



The Post was also quick to try to develop some post board material for the Yankee locker room with this headline: INDIANS: HISTORIC 14-RUN INNING WAS 'FUN'

In the article they point out all the "laughter" and "chuckling" going on with each interview.

And one final headline, this one from the New York Daily News:

Historic low for Wang, Yankees

The rest...

Sheldon Ocker sees the strikeouts piling up with this Indians team and wonders the importance of it all.

Adam Miller had another set back with his injured finger.

Don't expect to hear cheers for Carl Pavano today, well just Bronx cheers.

Columbus Clippings

The Indians unveiled Huntington Park yesterday and filled the place to capacity, with standing room only filled as well.

That meant little to the Toledo Mud Hens though as they beat the Clippers 3-1. After spotting the Mud Hens a 2-0 lead, Jeremy Sowers settled down to strike out eight in six innings. He walked one.
