Last month Bill wrote a post noting just how rare it was for a team to score a run in every inning of the game. He was inspired to do so by the Brewers accomplishing the feat against the Braves. Welp, it happened again last night.
The White Sox put 11 runs on the Indians. It wasn’t even the most runs scored by a winning team last night, but they spread their scoring out nicely:
- 1st Jose Abreu grounded out to shortstop scoring Adam Eaton;
- 2nd Omar Narvaez hit a sacrifice fly to center, scoring Avisail García;
- 3rd Abreu doubled to left, scoring Tim Anderson;
- 4th García homered;
- 4th Anderson singled to left, Narvaez scored;
- 5th Narvaez struck out swinging but reached on a passed ball and Abreu scored;
- 6th Eaton homered;
- 7th Tyler Saladino doubled in García;
- 7th Eaton hit an infield single, scoring Saladino;
- 8th Todd Frazier homered
There was no ninth inning scoring because the Sox were the home team, of course. I’m not sure if that counts in the “scored in every inning” records, but I’m gonna say it does because it was cool. If it does, it was the 17th time that has ever happened in a big league game, which is a lot rarer than you’d think. As Bill noted last month, it’s happened fewer times than perfect games have been thrown.
