Yankees pitcher Brandon McCarthy contributed to a broken MLB record tonight against the Rays when he tossed the sixth immaculate inning of the season. His effort broke the record for most immaculate innings in a season, set in 1998. The first five were pitched by Brad Boxberger, Cole Hamels, Justin Masterson, Garrett Richards, and Rex Brothers.

McCarthy faced Wil Myers, Nick Franklin, and Matt Joyce in the seventh inning, and sent each of them down swinging on three pitches. His flawless inning was part of a stellar performance in which he surrendered only two runs across seven innings; the Yankees won 3-2.

Here's a video of McCarthy's inning below:
