Yankees record nine consecutive hits against David Price

By Mike Axisa | Baseball Writer

Former Rays and current Tigers left-hander David Price is a legitimate Cy Young contender this year. He went into Wednesday night's start with a sparking 3.00 ERA and an MLB-leading 221 strikeouts in 201 1/3 innings.

Price's Cy Young candidacy took a bit of a hit against the Yankees on Wednesday, however (GameTracker). New York opened the third inning with nine (!) consecutive hits against the southpaw, scoring six runs and loading the bases with no outs in the process.

Don't believe me? Here's the play-by-play, and the play-by-play never lies:

According to the YES Network broadcast, the record for most consecutive hits is one inning is 11 by the 2010 Rockies. Here are some other fun facts:

The nine straight hits were followed with two sacrifice flies and a ground ball, so the total damage was eight runs in the inning. That's a good way to smash an ERA.
