On August 12, 1953 — Playing without the injured Mickey Mantle – out for 10 days with a sprained knee – the Yankees explode for 28 hits off Washington pitching‚ two shy of the American League record. New York rolls to a 22 – 1 victory. Rookie Steve Kraly‚ relieving Whitey Ford‚ gives up a run to avert the largest shutout win in history. Ford has 4 hits‚ and Yogi Berra and Billy Martin each collect 5 RBIs. Hank Bauer scores 5 runs.
Derek Jeter passes the legendary Babe Ruth on the Yankees’ all-time hits list, adding a first inning single during the 7-1 victory over the Angels in Anaheim to run his career total to 2,519 hits. Lou Gehrig (2,721) is now the only Bronx Bomber with more hits than the club’s current shortstop.
