Mariners outslug Bronx Bombers: Seattle sets team record for runs at Yankee Stadium (DAVID ANDRIESEN, 5/05/07, Seattle Post-Intelligencer)

How crazy was it Friday night at Yankee Stadium?

It was so crazy that the Mariners scored 15 runs and still had to use their closer.

It was so crazy that Seattle starter Cha Seung Baek gave up seven runs in just 3 2/3 innings -- yet was still only the third-worst pitcher in the game.

It was so crazy that despite a total of 36 base hits, and 17 of 18 starting position players getting hits on the night, Derek Jeter went 0-for-6 to end the longest hitting streak in the major leagues.

The Mariners ran into the only team in baseball more worn out than they were, and after 3 1/2 hours of slugging it out like a couple of punch-drunk tomato cans, Seattle escaped with an exhausting 15-11 victory in the opener of a four-game series.
