Scoring runs has been an issue for the Yankees all season. In the fourth inning Monday it felt like they were making up for the past five months in a single frame.

The Yankees exploded for eight runs in the inning on their way to a 9-1 win over the White Sox in front of an announced Labor Day crowd of 40125 at soggy Yankee Stadium.

Six different Yankees drove in runs during the 33-minute fourth the team’s biggest inning of the season. Derek Jeter and Austin Romine each had two RBI helping the Yankees put the sting of Sunday’s loss to the Orioles behind them.

“That was a big inning for us” Romine said. “It was kind of like everybody was sitting there champing at the bit to get up there and help the team get some runs just keep the line moving.”

After dropping four of six games on their last road trip the Yankees have opened their 10-game home stand with three wins in four days. That they won Monday in a laugher after what feels like an entire season of one- and two-run games made it feel even better.

“We’ll take that any time” Romine said. “It’s good when guys can breathe a little bit.”

David Huff threw 5.2 innings of one-run ball in relief of Phil Hughes who was forced out of the game when rain delayed play in the second inning for nearly two hours.
