Cardinals tie playoff record with 10 runs in first


ATLANTA — Fans were barely in their seats before the St. Louis Cardinals made history, scoring 10 runs in the first inning of their decisive Game 5 against the Braves.

It’s the most runs scored in an inning in league division play history and is tied for the most in one inning in postseason history.

Braves starter Mike Foltynewicz lasted just 0.1 of an inning while giving up seven runs on three hits and three walks after giving up no runs on three hits over seven innings in Game 2.

Reliever Max Fried didn’t fare much better, giving up the final three runs of the inning on two hits and a walk.

Dexter Fowler, Kolten Wong and Tommy Edman each had two RBI apiece while starting pitcher Jack Flaherty drew a bases loaded walk after the Braves gave an intentional pass to No. 8 hitter Paul DeJong.

The Cardinals had just five hits in the inning marking the first time a team scored at least 10 runs with five or fewer hits since June, 2011. It’s the second time this season a team scored 10 runs without hitting a home run.
