The Phillies Just Scored 12 Runs on the Nationals … IN THE FIRST INNING

What’s that thing about a picture saying a thousand words? Oh yeah, a picture says a thousand words:

That is the first inning of tonight’s game between the (very good) Nationals and the (very rebuilding) Phillies.

How on earth did that happen, you ask? I’m glad you did. The Phillies’ first inning went:

Double

Single

Walk

Sac Fly

Single

Single

Walk

Sac Fly (yes, the first two outs in the inning BOTH scored a run)

Walk

Walk

Triple

Single

Double

Double

Single

Strikeout (You should be ashamed, Cameron Rupp.)

That’s 16 batters coming to the plate in the first inning, with all but three reaching base. In case you’re wondering who started fro the Nationals tonight, it was Jeremy Guthrie, who was allowed to face the first 12 batters in that inning.
