Although only two home runs were hit, the New York Yankees unleashed a fury of offense (21 runs) on the Texas Rangers Tuesday night.

The only proper thing to do if your a ball club who’s spot-starting Chris Capuano on a mundane Tuesday night is to come through offensively.

That’s exactly what the New York Yankees did, amazingly to the tune of 21 runs.

The final score of 21-5 was secondary to the phenomenal display of hitting the world saw tonight from the Bronx Bombers.

Shortstop Didi Gregorius went 4-5 with three runs batted in and two runs scored. Brett Gardner went 3-4 with a home run; Chase Headley, Alex Rodriguez, John Ryan Murphy and Brendan Ryan all collected two hits a piece; and Chris Young went 3-6 with five runs batted in including a grand slam in the third inning.

New York had already plated 11 runs after the top of the second inning.

The win came despite Capuano managing to only survive through two outs of the first inning before receiving the quick hook (5 ER).

Game 3 of the series will go down on Wednesday after the Yanks taking the first two.
