What is the most runs the Sox have ever scored in a 3-game series?

Having scored 33 in the first two games against the so-called St. Louis Cardinals, are the Sox on pace to break the record? Or, was there some inhumane whipping the Sox laid on a team in the past, a whipping so brutal that laws had to be enacted to ensure it would never be repeated?

Anyway you slice it this has got to be up there. I mean they are ALREADY averaging 11 runs per game for the three games and the third game doesn't start for another 9 hours. :o:

I WANT TO KNOW THE ANSWER


I was hoping that LipMan would have replied by now. Something like:

Fisk:

We have to go all the way back to 1911 for the answer.

The Sox played a three game series in Philadelphia against the A's with a combined score of 56-1. Heine Hooleran, known as "Ol' Jugears" to his teammates, started all three games for the Sox and pitched 27 innings of 2-hit ball.

The A's scored their only run of the series when a mule got onto the field and distracted Hooleran. He beaned his own catcher with a wild pitch and the ball sailed into the crowd. The A's baserunner, Frenchy LaRue, ran home all the way from first base, then got tossed out of the game for looking at the umpire sideways. The run counted, as did the 56 runs that the Sox scored in that series.

Game scores were 19-0, 19-0 and 18-1 in a somewhat shoddy game three effort, when Manager Fielder Jones substituted most of the Sox starters with their wives or sisters.

A's Manager Connie Mack called the series the sorriest thing he'd seen since Teddy Roosevelt dropped his trousers at him during a visit to Washington.

:o: Wow, 56-1, that's insane!! Anybody remember the series in Yankee Stadium in 2000 when we swept them in four games and outscored them 42-17?

I don't know the answer to the three game record but the two game record is 34 runs, set in 1955 at Kansas City. (Of course the Sox got 29 in one of those...)

Sorry that's the best I can do. I'm packing and have to finish car work before taking off for Great Falls and Roland Hemond.

On a related note, when's the last time St Louis gave up 20 runs in a game?Or 33 in two games? Or 51 in three games? :D: You don't hear about the Cards getting blown out real often.

According to baseball-reference.com, the '36 White Sox beat the Senators 16-5 on 17 Jul, then swept a doubleheader from the Athletics 7-4 and 21-14 on 18 Jul. Those 44 runs are the most the Sox appear to have scored in three consecutive games.

Incidentally, on 19 Jul 36, the Sox swept another doubleheader from the Athletics, 11-5 and 8-2.

The 29-6 game actually was part of the three-game sequence (not series--haven't figured that out yet) with the second highest number of Sox runs. On 21 Apr 55 the Sox beat the Tigers 9-1 before taking two from the Athletics by scores of 5-3 and 29-6.

I'm guessing it's been a while. I checked baseball-reference.com and saw the most runs the Cards have given up in a three-game sequence was 43 (once in '36 and again in '54). The last time they gave up 33 in three games was in 2001 (losing to Colorado 13-9 in game 2 of the season and 11-2 in game 3 but then beating the Diamondbacks 12-9 in game 4).

OK, I'll try to quit after this . . .

In their last five games, the Sox have scored 61 runs. That's only the fourth time they've scored 60+ runs in a five-game sequence. The last time they did it was in games 38 to 42 of the '96 season--beating the Brewers 20-8 then losing to them 3-2 before sweeping the Tigers 11-6, 16-4, and 14-3.

I'm guessing the 41 runs against the Tigers are the most the Sox have scored in a three-game series (rather than sequence) . . .

Edit: yes, the 41 runs against the Tigers in '96 are the most scored by the Sox in a 3-game series. There's your answer, Baby Fisk . . .
