Braves set NL Record with 29 runs over the Marlins; Brewers crush Detroit 19 – 0

No, that’s not a typo.

Typically, a team scoring nine runs would be looking pretty good to win a ballgame. This was not the case for the Marlins yesterday as the Braves beat every ounce of the absolute living shit out of them outscored them by twenty runs – meaning there were thirty-eight total runs in this ballgame. Their twenty-nine runs fell one short of the all time MLB record of thirty runs set by Baltimore in 2007, but they did manage to get the modern day era record (since 1900) with those runs.

The Marlins scored two runs in the top of the second, but Atlanta opened the game wide open in the bottom half of the inning with eleven runs – nine of those coming with two outs. Pitcher Pablo Lopez was pulled after seven runs, but his replacement Jordan Yamamoto was unable to stop the bleeding. In all, the Braves hit seven home runs during this game, with three of those coming off the bat of left-fielder Adam Duvall. Oh, and his last bomb was a grand slam in the seventh. You can find the complete play by play here.

This game is overshadowing ANOTHER huge win of 19 – 0 of the Brewers over the Tigers. The Brewers hit five homers in this game, with two coming from first baseman Jedd Gyorko. Their play by play looks pretty tame in comparison to the Braves/Marlins match up, but on any other day the hit parade from Milwaukee would have been the big story across MLB.

Two games, FIFTY. SEVEN. RUNS. Who says a shortened season isn’t exciting?
