Default Monday Afternoon Trivia

What major league manager lost two games, managing two different teams, by the identical score of 26-7?

On June 11, 1985, while managing the Mets, the Phillies beat them 26-7. Philadelphia scored 9 runs in the 1st and 7 in the 2nd to lead 16-0 after two innings.

Eleven years later, on April 19, 1996, while managing the Orioles, Baltimore trailed the Texas Rangers 10-7 after having failed to score in the top of the 8th. In the bottom of the eighth, Texas scored 16 times to win 26-7.

Probably the only two 26-7 games ever played, and Johnson managed and lost them both! What are the odds?

There has been at least one other one, the Cubs beat the Rockies 26-7 in Colorado on August 18, 1995. It came to my mind as soon as I saw 26-7 mentioned.

In a 16 run inning at least one batter must have come to the plate 3 times. Crazy.

Then there were three. I remember a Giants game in 1944 that they won 26-8, but not the Rockies game. 26 runs or more has probably been done fewer than a dozen times. Again, just a guess.

I just went to Retrosheet and saw the box score for the Cubs 26-7 win in 1995. Good catch.
