Minor league baseball doesn’t usually get our attention unless something crazy happens, and that’s exactly what happened Thursday night.The Round Rock Express (located in Texas) scored an insane 26 runs against the Las Vegas Aviators. The funny thing is Las Vegas didn’t even play that poorly. The Aviators put up 11 runs of their own, but it obviously wasn’t enough as the Express put up a score you typically see in a football game. There were nine home runs in the gameThe combined record for two teams hitting home runs in a single MLB game is 12, so these teams weren’t too far off.Kyle Tucker, the fifth overall pick in the 2015 draft, hit a pair of homers, giving him 20 on the season. Nick Tanielu and the Aviators’ Barreto also hit a pair of homers. Taylor Jones, Eric Campbell and Cameron Rupp each hit one.There were 90 total at-batsPlayers with 4+ at-bats: 17Players with 5+ at-bats: 9Players with 6+ at-bats: 4Players with 7 at-bats: 3According to Baseball Almanac, the record for at-bats during a nine-inning game is eight, held by 18 different players.

MORE: Benches clear after bunt breaks up no-hitter in Yard Goats-Thunder gameSo, with so many runs scored in this baseball game we thought it’d be fun to look at some of the ridiculous numbers that were put up.Every batter scored a runYou might read that stat and think that only applies to the Express, but no. Everyone on the Aviators scored a run as well. There were 20 batters with at least one at-bat and every single one of them scored at least one run. Of those 20, eight of them scored two runs or more.Taylor Jones was a perfect 5-for-5We mentioned already that every batter scored at least one run, but Express first baseman Taylor Jones led the way with five runs. In fact, he went a perfect 5-for-5 at the plate, with six RBIs. He had seven total plate appearances, which included two walks.We also should make mention of the Aviators’ Franklin Barreto, who also went 5-for-5 at the plate. He hit two home runs, had four RBIs and scored three runs. Norge Ruiz allowed seven runs in 0.0 inningsOfficially, Aviators pitcher Norge Ruiz pitched in 0.0 innings. But he did face seven batters, and allowed seven earned runs while giving up five hits and walking two. His poor outing contributed to an incredible 13-run inning in the seventh, which took this game to a completely different level.Ruiz wasn’t alone in his struggles, though. The two Aviators pitchers before him had already given up 10 earned runs. And of the six pitchers the Aviators used in the game, all of them allowed at least one earned run.
