No, that's not a typo. The Texas Rangers have scored 30 runs against the Orioles. And this is only the first game of a double header.

It is a modern major league record. Since 1900, no team has ever scored 30 runs. Wow! :o::o::o::o:

Texas has put up a 30 spot on the Orioles... yes, a 30 spot. Most in an MLB game since 1900.

This is the first game of a twi-night double header. Wonder what will happen in game 2...

All this on a day when Dave Tremblay was given a new contract to manage the Orioles for 2008.

I thought for sure it was a typo when I saw it on the bottom line. But wow is it real. 25 runs in the last 4 innings!!! Oh yeah and Sammy Sosa didn't even play. Hah, he deserves that

Yup... I was watching the game on MASN, but turned it to ESPN2 when it got to be 14 to 3. Then as I was cooking dinner, I heard the ESPN guys mention 27 runs for the Rangers.

Wow...30 runs...that just what you score in slow-pitch softball...wow! :o: O's team ERA just skyrocketed here. When your 8 and 9 hitters go a combined 8 for 12 with 14 RBIs and 9 runs...that's enough to cream a team just with those 2. Throw in 6 other players with multi-RBI games, and you have just a butt-whuppin. Only 6 HRs though. I would have guessed about 8 or 9 with a score that high.

Funny thing is, O's were up 3-0 to start the game.

kjhanson
08-22-2007, 07:54 PM
This is a record that will never be broken... step aside Cy Young and Cal Ripken Jr. Wes Littleton pitched 3 scoreless innings to pick up the save. Yes, a save in a game where the run differential was 27!!

And through 5 innings, it was just an ordinary 5-3 game. Then the Rangers put up 25 runs in the next 4 innings.

You are right in that being a tough record to break. I wouldn't put it above 500+ wins, but it's very high up there...a very weird statistic.

This pushes the White Sox out of the record books.

The Sox previously were tied for the AL record of most runs in a game with 29 - which they scored against the Kansas City A's on April 23, 1955.

The other team was Boston, who defeated the St. Louis Browns 29-4 in
1950.

In honor of our "psychic" thread in the Parking Lot, I am going to play
Aristonides (The fearless seer who once predicted "two nations will go
to war, but only one will win") and make a bold prediction-ALL, every one
of the NATIONAL news sources (Fox, ESPN) will mention the Red Sox as
the previous holders of the record, but will NOT mention one word of the
White Sox being former co-holders. Maybe the Trib and Times, too.

Philadelphia scored 26 back in the mid-80's (I think 1985) against the Mets. I remember Charles Hudson pitching like total crap and winning. That's the most I can rememebr off-hand.

The kicker about this 30-3 game is that Wes Littleton was credited with A SAVE!!!!!

Baltimore was winning 3-0 after three innings. At that point, it seemed like they had a good chance of winning.

I scored over 100 runs on my old 2600. The scoreboard didn't go past 99. :D:

Baseball is such a funny game. Texas is the same team to give up a total of three runs in three games against the Twins this weekend. They lost two of them. ..

08-23-2007, 12:32 AM
Like others, I'm thinking how does pitching the ninth in that abomination rate a save? Regardless of the rules.

Anyway, show no mercy, I guess. But geez, if they're piling on like that in the 8th and 9th, why not just throw a towel out on the field and say, "Screw you. We forfeit. Good night."

How many runs were scored in that game between Philadelphia and the Cubs in '79?

45 runs combined. The Phils won 23-22 in 10 innings. The Cubs, at one point in the game, were trailing 21-9.:o:

I was there and it was great! One of the great things about going to a game is you never know when you'll see baseball history.

The Orioles fans really impressed me. They gave the Rangers a standing O after they scored the 30th run.

It was my first time at Camden Yards and for me it more than lived up to all the hype I had ever heard about the place. It's a great ballpark.

Not only is that true, but they've only given up 30+ twice in the last three seasons. Not once in 2006 or 2004.

Unless I'm mistaken, the "Modern era" of baseball is considered to be from 1900 on. Per Baseball-reference, postseason games prior to 1903 were considered to be exhibitions. I believe there were other things about the game that changed around that same time that divide the history of baseball into two different eras. Perhaps someone else who knows more about this can comment.

I know a lot of people here at WSI hate ESPN and all ESPN personalities. I am in that group for the most part but what you wrote above is the reason I really like Tim K. Despite all his years covering the game, he still loves it like a little kid. When he is on Baseball Tonight, I feel like he is talking to ME, fan-to-fan. With most of the other clowns, I feel like they are talking down to me, with an attitude of "I know everything there is to know about baseball and you should consider yourself lucky that someone of my stature is taking the time to share my knowledge with you."

No the official record for runs scored in a game is actually 36. whether its pre or post modern. If you look at the list it will have 36 then texas with 30 (with modern record in quotes).

He's definitely one of the more palatable 'personalities' on that whole network. I do like him, and John Clayton for football is another one that I can stomach. There may be a couple more, but it's a pretty short list.

The Chicago Colts beat the Louisville Colonels 36-7 on June 29, 1897. The Detroit Wolverines lost to the Boston Beaneaters 30-8 on June 9, 1883, which probably set the previous National League record.

I won a case of Barrelhead Root Beer from some now-defunct Chicago radio station (WMAQ or WIND) in 1975 for knowing that the Chicago Colts held the record for runs in a game. I read it on the back of a package of Turkish Taffy.
