The Night We Scored 24

blue jays

All baseball fans are aware by now of what happened last night in Baltimore.  The Texas Rangers put 30 runs on the board to win 30-3.  It's been 110 years since a team scored 30 runs in a single game.

Blue Jays fans are likely wondering what our team record is for runs in a game.  I'm here to provide you with the answer.  On June 26, 1978, the Toronto Blue Jays beat up on those same Baltimore Orioles 24-10 at Exhibition Stadium.  Tom Underwood got the win and future Jay Mike Flanagan got saddled with the loss.  John Mayberry led the way going 3 for 3 with 7 RBIs.

Were you one of the 16,184 at Exhibition Stadium that night?
