TORONTO — On this date in 2000, Bernie Williams and Jorge Posada made like Arianna Grande and homered from side to side. The New York Yankees switch-hitting duo became the first pair of teammates to go deep from both sides of the plate in the same game. It all came in a 10-7 victory over the Toronto Blue Jays at the Skydome.
Batting from the left side in the first frame, Bernie Baseball staked the Bronx Bombers to a 2-0 lead with a homer to left-center off Frank Castillo.
During the second stanza, hip-hip-Jorge smacked a solo smash to right to tie the game at three.
As part of a seven-run fourth frame, from the right side, Williams walloped a three-run homer to center off Clayton Andrews, making it 8-3. Two batters later, Posada, also from the right side, crushed a two-run tater to center off Andrews to cap off the New York scoring at 10-3.
