The 16 combined runs the White Sox and Yankees scored in the second inning Thursday were the most ever for a second inning in major league history. The output also marked the second time in baseball history that both teams have scored at least eight runs in the same inning. Detroit (8) and Texas (10) accomplished the feat on May 8, 2004.
