May 4, 1962 - The Boston Red Sox defeated the White Sox, 13-6, tonight on the strength of a 12-run inning, the biggest in the major leagues this season. Carl Yastrzemski (pictured) drove in four runs in the surge. The weak-hitting Red Sox had been held to a pair of singles by the White Sox starter, Ray Herbert, through four innings. Then they paraded 16 men to the plate against 5 pitchers. There were six singles, two doubles, and five walks in the inning. During the outburst, Russ Nixon went in to pinch-hit for Mike Fornieles. Before Nixon was through, he had singled twice, scored twice, and driven in a pair of runs.
