Baseball: Japanese high school team allows 66 runs in two innings

A Japanese high school baseball squad had to plead for a regional game to be abandoned after getting lit up for a morale-shattering 66 runs in less than two innings on Thursday.

 

According to a report from Reuters, the coach of Kawamoto technical high school threw in the towel with one batter out in the bottom of the second to spare his pitcher, who had already thrown over 250 pitches. He allowed 26 runs in the first inning and 40 in the second before the club asked for mercy.

 

?At that pace the pitcher would have thrown around 500 pitches in four innings,? Kawamoto?s coach told local media. ?There was a danger he could get injured.?

 

The game was officially recorded as a 9-0 victory for opponents Shunshukan.

 

The Major League Baseball record for runs scored by a single team in an inning is 16, set by Boston in a National League game versus Baltimore June 18, 1894. The American League record is 14 runs, shared by Cleveland (vs. Philadelphia, June 18, 1950) and Boston (vs. Florida, June 27, 2003).

I remember this game. I believe they ended up scoring 25 runs or something. Mark Redman I believe was the pitcher.

 

We also clobbered them the next game and may have won the series.

That's quite the whooping of some ass.

 

The next game we won 10-9 after a RBI single from Pudge and a 3 run homer Lowell.

 

We lost game 3 though, 11-7

I know it doesn't really matter, but isn't the record 18 in an inning?

I know Boston had a 17 run inning once (I have a book proving it with pictures) so... yeah..
