[1]NEW YORK — Something has certainly clicked for Alfonso Soriano during his second stint in pinstripes.

Soriano homered twice for the second straight night and drove in a career-high seven runs, giving him a staggering 13 RBIs in two games while powering the suddenly potent New York Yankees to an 11-3 victory over the Los Angeles Angels on Wednesday.

“I know it’s not going to happen often,” Soriano said. “I hope I feel the same way tomorrow.”

Soriano hit an early grand slam and became the third player to knock in at least six runs in back-to-back games since RBIs became an official statistic in 1920, according to STATS. The others were Texas’ Rusty Greer in August 1997 and Milwaukee’s Geoff Jenkins in April 2001.
