For 1st time since '99, a score not seen before

September 10th, 2020

The Braves shattered several records with their rout of the Marlins on Wednesday at Truist Park, including the modern National League mark for runs in a game, but it took both teams' contributions to reach one particular milestone: No Major League game had ever ended with a final score of 29-9.

According to Jeremy Frank, who goes by @MLBRandomStats on Twitter, the 29-9 decision was the first "Scorigami," or unique final score, in MLB since the Reds beat the Rockies 24-12 on May 19, 1999.

Only two other games in MLB history have ended with one team having scored 29 runs: the Red Sox's 29-4 win over the St. Louis Browns on June 8, 1950, and the White Sox's 29-6 triumph over the Kansas City A's on April 23, 1955. The Rangers hold the modern MLB record (since 1900) for runs in a game with their 30-3 win over the Orioles on Aug. 22, 2007, but according to Frank, that was the second such decision in MLB history dating back to 1871.
