Brewers Score In Every Inning Against Atlanta

August 11, 2016:
Atlanta - 000 002 100 -  3  9  1
Brewers - 211 113 11x - 11 14  0
This did not set or tie a National League record, however, because four visiting NL teams have scored in all nine innings.

June 29, 1897
Chicago Colts       - 357 121 278 - 36 32  1
Louisville Colonels - 001 050 100 -  7 14  9
June 1, 1923
New York Giants       - 421 155 121 - 22 23  0
Philadelphia Phillies - 140 110 010 -  8 15  0
September 13, 1964
St. Louis Cardinals - 212 221 311 - 15 18  1
Chicago Cubs        - 100 001 000 -  2  8  7
May 5, 1999
Colorado Rockies - 111 121 222 - 13 18  1
Chicago Cubs     - 023 000 010 -  6 10  3
News stories said that this was the 19th time since 1900 that a team has scored in every inning. But because no American League team has ever scored in all nine innings, most of those games were by the home team batting in only eight innings.

Came here as soon as I heard! Congrats, Allan! (Even if it was only an 8-ball.)
