History, Comments, Contributions[edit]

On June 13-16, the 2019 San Diego Padres combined with the Colorado Rockies to set a new major league record by scoring a total of 92 runs in a four-game series, beating the previous record of 88 set in 1929. The series started innocently with a 9-6 win by Colorado, followed by a 16-12 Padres win in 12 innings, that featured San Diego coming back from 6 runs down in the 9th; in the third game, San Diego lost, 14-8, but they won the final game, 14-13, when Rockies closer Wade Davis gave up 4 runs in the 9th, the last on a bases-loaded walk. Hunter Renfroe had a three-homer game in the second game, including long balls in the 9th and 12th innings, and two more in the 4th game to give him a total of 23 on the year.
