Events[edit]

  • On consecutive days in July 1930, the Philadelphia Phillies manages to score 15 runs in a game, but were losers in both games. On July 23, the Phillies lost to the Pittsburgh Pirates 16–15, and on July 24, they lost to the Chicago Cubs 19–15.[1] The July 24 game still holds the record for the most runs scored in a game without a home run.[2]
