USA TODAY Sports’ Steve Gardner breaks down the top MLB storylines.
That’s still true. It’s just that the Atlanta Braves, responsible for hanging 29 runs on the Miami Marlins, and the Milwaukee Brewers, who blanked the Detroit Tigers, both broke out the bats in a big way.
The Brewers socked the Tigers at Comerica Park throughout Wednesday afternoon. By the final out of the Braves’ demolition of the Marlins that night, there were plenty of crooked numbers to break down.
Brewers 19, Tigers 0
8: Doubles by Milwaukee
5: Runs the Brewers scored in the sixth inning, and the most in any frame Wednesday. Also the number of RBI for third baseman Luis Urías to lead the team
4: Hits by rookie Tyrone Taylor, who hit his first career home run.
19: The second-largest margin of victory in franchise history
11: Strikeouts by Milwaukee right-hander Corbin Burnes, who allowed one hit over seven innings.
120: The number of the years the Tigers have existed. Wednesday marked their worst shutout loss ever.
Braves 29, Marlins 9
29: A Braves franchise record and most runs by National League team in the modern era (since 1900)
18: Runs scored via home runs, tying the record for a game in MLB history
3: Home runs by Adam Duvall, who became the first player in MLB history to hit a two-run homer, a three-run homer and a grand slam in a game in that order
9: RBI from Duvall
12: Earned runs charged to Marlins reliever Jordan Yamamoto, who allowed four long balls in 2 2/3 innings.
.647: Braves’ batting average with runners in scoring position (11-for-17)
