The Atlanta Braves made history Wednesday night.
After being shut out by Sixto Sanchez and four Miami Marlins relievers on Tuesday, the Braves bounced back with a monumental offensive performance, scoring a National League modern era record 29 runs in a 29-9 win against the same Marlins.
Atlanta reached the magic number on Adam Duvall’s seventh-inning grand slam — his third home run of the game.
The overall MLB record for most runs scored by one team in a single game is 36, set by the Chicago Colts in 1897. The Texas Rangers hold the modern era record after scoring 30 runs against the Baltimore Orioles on Aug. 22, 2007.
Atlanta scored 29 runs despite not scoring in the first and eighth innings and not batting in the ninth inning. The onslaught began with an 11-run second inning, which was capped by back-to-back home runs by Duvall and Ozzie Albies. Overall, the Braves hit seven home runs and scored at least three runs in five different innings.
Duvall led the charge with his three home runs and nine RBIs, which is the highest total by a Braves hitter in 54 years.

In that game on July 3, 1966, Tony Cloninger hit not one, but two grand slams. This is where we tell you Tony Cloninger was a pitcher.
That’s just one interesting tidbit attached to the Braves historic win. Here are a few more:
Nick Markasis: Witness to history
Veteran outfielder Nick Markasis was in the ballpark for two highest-scoring games in MLB's modern era.
He hit clean up for Baltimore on that fateful night 13 years ago, doubling home one of the Orioles’ three runs. He was also present and in uniform for Atlanta on Wednesday, but never entered the game.
Not enough support for Tommy Milone
When the Braves acquired veteran left-hander Tommy Milone on Aug. 30, they hoped he’d fill a void in the team’s ailing starting rotation. Instead, he’s gone winless in three starts despite his offense scoring an average of 16 runs.

That ... is not good.
In Wednesday’s outing, Milone failed to qualify for the win after allowing eight runs in 3 1/3 innings. With the Braves, he’s allowed 16 earned runs in 9 2/3 innings.
No relief found
After Marlins starter Pablo Lopez allowed seven runs in 1 2/3 innings, manager Don Mattingly turned to Jordan Yamamoto in relief.
Unfortunately, no relief was provided. Instead, Yamamoto found himself in exclusive company that no pitcher wants to join.
Jordan Yamamoto became just the third reliever in baseball history (since 1901) to pitch fewer than three innings and allow at least 13 runs.— Devan Fink (@DevanFink) September 10, 2020
Vin Mazzaro (5/16/2011) and Hugh Canavan (7/6/1918) are the others.
If that's not bad enough, Yamamoto's career ERA went up by a full run now 90 innings into his MLB career.

Into tonight: 5.15
Together, though, the two NL franchise's made a different kind of history.
The Brewers scored 19 runs today and the Braves scored 29. That's 48 total.— Sarah Langs (@SlangsOnSports) September 10, 2020
That's the most combined runs in a day by 2 teams in different games since 9/10/1891:
-Brewers (diff franchise) scored 30
-Beaneaters (now Braves!) scored 18
That's both amazing and pretty fun when you consider the Braves moved from Milwaukee to Atlanta in 1966 and were soon replaced by the Brewers.
