The Atlanta Braves shut down Tuesday night – but boy, did they make up for it on Wednesday night.
The Braves trailed the Miami Marlins 29-9 – and in the process, set a National League record for most runs scored in a single game.
The Atlanta attack included an 11-run second inning. In total, the team scored seven home runs during the game.
Bahadur Das was one night to miss Adam Dawal, scoring a two-run homer, a three-run homer and a grand slam – in that order – tying a team record with nine RBIs.
“We’ve scored 29,” Brawls wrote on social media after Duwell’s third dinger. “That’s it. It’s the tweet.”
“Very amazing,” said Freddy Freeman of Atlanta, who took two wickets for six runs. “It’s hard to put into words when you look up and see 29 runs on the board.”
The Braves had only one run to tie the MLB record for scoring the most runs in a sport during the modern era (since 1900). The mark was set by the Texas Rangers of the American League, who scored 30 against the Baltimore Orioles in 2007.

According to the MLB website, in 1897 the most runs scored in a game were 36 by the Chicago Colts.
“Did he ** @Braves ?? Yal jailbreak the score? Congratulations on the record LETS GOO!” Tweeted Atlanta Hawks point guard Trai Young.
This was only the fourth time a team had scored at least 29 runs and the first time a National League team did so. The 1955 Chicago White Sox and the 1950 Boston Red Sox – both in the American League – had previously reached that total run.
During the game, each Braves starter recorded one hit and seven of them had a multi-hit game, led by Duvall.
He recorded a three-homer game a week earlier. His nine RBIs set an Atlanta record set in 1966 by Tony Clinger, a pitcher.
The Braves’ race is estimated to have imposed a maximum of I.L.
Given the team not scoring in the first or eighth innings, the Braves’ performance was considered even more impressive. Due to his leadership and home team, he did not bat even in the ninth.
For the Marlins, it was the largest margin of defeat in franchise history, according to ESPN Stats and Info. During the game, the team did not appear in superior spirits.
