Flip through the box scores, and a 29-9 final score may jump out, followed by a 19-0. What day is it? The NFL doesn't kick off until Thursday night!
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.
While the @Brewers have yet to get on a roll so far in 2020, they flexed some offensive muscles earlier today in a very one-sided victory that marked the Tigers’ worst shutout loss in 120 seasons of existence while finishing behind just 2 games on this all-time MIL franchise list pic.twitter.com/w85Pc3iuSU
