Angel Stadium of Anaheim, Anaheim, California
• Summary: Garret Anderson of the Angels turned in a performance for the ages, driving in a team-record 10 RBIs with two homers (a grand slam and three-run homer) as the Angels poured in 18 runs on the Yankees.
• Turning point: Los Angeles knocked around New York starter Mike Mussina right out of the gates. Mussina gave up seven hits and seven runs in just 1 2/3 innings.
• Hero: Anderson's 10 RBIs were one more than Vladimir Guerrero had for the Angels against Boston in a 2004 game.
• Figure this: Anderson fell one RBI shy of tying the AL record for RBIs in a game held by Tony Lazzeri of the Yankees (1936), and two from tying the major league record shared by the Cardinals' Jim Bottomley (1924) and Mark Whiten (1993).
• On the flip side: Alex Rodriguez hit a pair of solo shots, knocking his 42nd homer of the year in the ninth with the game result all but decided.
• Quotable: "It's something a lot of guys wish would happen in a week -- and he had it in one night." -- Yankees catcher Jose Molina
• Audio: Anderson told ESPN Radio that he didn't know he had 10 RBIs until one of his coaches told him during the game. Listen
