Default Texas 30 - Baltimore... 3!!!! O/T - Sort of, Sort of Not

Posted By: Jon Canfield

WOW - So the Rangers beat up on... no; DESTROYED Baltimore today, 30-3. Last time a team scored 30 or more runs in a game? 1897...

My favorite part of that game is that the starter pitched 6 innings, and then gave the ball over to another guy for 3 innings. That last guy got a save out of it all.

At least Baltimore got a field goal.

As the late Scooter would say "Holy Cow". That's looks much more like a final score from a football game.

I wonder if John McGraw were managing the Rangers and had Christy Mathewson in his rotation, if the Rangers would have scored 30 tonight.

Sorry, it's been a long day.

Rob, good point. We should debate this as I am very concerned about this issue.

Some other points of interest:

Baltimore led the game 3 - 0 at one point and then were outscored 30 - 0.

The Rangers scored 16 Runs in the last two Innings.

The eight and nine hitters for the Rangers BOTH had seven RBI's each.

The Rangers hit two Grand Slams.

Baltimore used only four Pitchers and each one gave up six or more Runs.

This was the first game of a Double Header.

Texas needs to score 13 Runs in the second game to tie the record for most Runs scored by one team in a Double Header.

David

Never thought I'd see a game like this. 30 runs seemed unreachable. And among the bizarre things is after 5 innings the score was 5-3. The Rangers scored 25 runs in the last four innings! One of the all-time great box scores.

Two other interesting points:

When the Orioles batted in the bottom of the 9th, they trailed by 27 runs! No other team in major league history has ever trailed by that many runs at any point of any game. And of course the final score was the largest margin of victory ever.

Texas was shut out in five innings, and they scored all their runs in just four frames. That means they scored 30 runs using only 12 of their outs. That is extraordinary!!

Is there a link somewhere to watch this game?

Barry,

I believe that the 36-7 game between Chicago and Louisville in 1897, represents a larger margin of victory (29 runs).

As an Orioles fan, all I can say is ouch. Before yesterday the last time a team allowed 25+ runs in a game? You guessed it, the 1996 Baltimore Orioles lost 26-7 to...the Texas Rangers. My Orioles hold virtually all of the horrible team records.

the Baltimore station was replaying the game in full. I suspect this game will be saved forever.

Ken- I should have qualified my statement with since 1900 (modern era).

19th century scoring was different than today. This was the ninth recorded 30 run game, and all the other eight were in the 19th century.

I was just speaking to a friend who like me, loves these very bizarre and extreme box scores, defined pretty much as games that are likely to occur once in a lifetime or only once ever.

The two best ones we could come up with from the last 50 years were the 1979 game in which the Phillies beat the Cubs 23-22 in 10 innings, and last night's. These are games that probably will never occur again. In 1981, Rochester and Pawtucket played 33 innings, and that one is equal to the other two in terms of rarity, but it was the minor leagues.

Barry,

That Rochester / Pawtucket game was a classic. I believe both Wade Boggs and Cal Ripken played in the game.

Boggs, Ripken, Bobby Ojeda, and I think one or two other future major leaguers.

James--

Your Orioles don't hold all the horrible records:

Most last place finishes by any pro major league team (any sport): Phillies 35

Most consecutive losses: 23 Phillies (1961)

the Phillies recently became the 1st pro major league team to lose 10,000 games
