MLB Is Historically 'Offensive'—Teams Score 61 Runs
Yesterday, MLB's Quadruple-Header made history. Not only were all four contests entertaining (multiple late comebacks, dramatic HRs), they were also record-setting in terms of single-day post-season runs scored. Collectively, the eight teams put up 61 runs on Monday. The previous one-day record was 48 on Oct. 5, 2002. The Mets alone tallied 13 runs against the Dodgers—while the Cubbies scored eight on six HRs. Also, the Royals pierced the plate nine times in their comeback win and the Blue Jays scored eight. And, has anybody noticed? This is rapidly becoming the post-season of the rookie. And, we're just starting!
