Most Runs, Hits with Only Certain Types of Hits

Friend of the VORG Doug Kern tweeted this out early this morning:

That got me wondering what the records were for most hits and runs for a team in a game would be, based on each specific hit type or combination of hit types.  First, here are the hit records.  For example, the Dodgers set the record for most hits with all being singles when they amassed 22 on June 3, 1988 in a 13-5 win over Cincinnati.

Doubleheaders with Same Linescores

Tuesday, the Mets lost both ends of a doubleheader to the Pirates by the same score, 3-1. The Pirates had a 3-10-0 linescore in each game while the Mets themselves nearly had the same linescore in both games. They were off by a grand total of 2 “pips” (1 fewer hit and 1 more error): … Read more

Consecutive Games Scoring Unique Number of Runs

The Red Sox lost 6-4 Wednesday evening, but thanks to friend of the VORG Joey Mallick, we were more disappointed that Boston failed to score either seven runs, or more than nine runs in the game. You see, a couple of days ago, Mallick pointed out to me that his beloved Sox had scored a … Read more

Rarest Scores in MLB History

One cool aspect of an otherwise lackluster Super Bowl was the final score (43-8).  Apparently it was the first game in NFL history to end with that specific score.   That got the VORG wondering which results have never occurred in MLB history.  Culling the game scores from 1900-2013, here are the final scores we’ve … Read more
