Houston Astros’ Triple-A affiliate goes off in 17-run inning

The Sugar Land Space Cowboys put up an inning for the ages in a 21-4 win over the Oklahoma City Dodgers in Sugar Land, Texas on Friday night, putting 23 men on the plate and hitting 17 runs in the sixth.

The Space Cowboys, the Houston Astros’ Triple-A affiliate, torched the Dodgers’ pitching in a 58-minute inning in the second game of a doubleheader at Constellation Field. The wild inning included 10 hits, including a home run and three doubles, and nine walks. Twelve of the 17 runs came with two outs.

Oklahoma City burned through four pitchers and 108 pitches before finally getting out of the inning.

Sugar Land’s 17-run inning would have equaled the current major-league record (since 1900) set by the Boston Red Sox, who went 17 in an inning against the Detroit Tigers on June 18, 1953.

The all-time major league record is 18 runs in an inning, set by the Chicago White Stockings (now the Cubs) on September 6, 1883.

It wasn’t immediately known what the minor league record for runs in an inning is, but a 2019 Dominican summer league game between the Yankees and the Angels ranked New York’s affiliate record 19 for second place.
