St. Louis sent 17 hitters to the plate, and tied a franchise record for runs in an inning. Back on September 16, 1926, the Cardinals scored 12 times in the bottom of the third inning against the Phillies.

Elias Sports Bureau reports that St. Louis tied a record for a shutout in which a team scored all its runs in one inning*. Cleveland scored 12 runs in the fourth inning of a 12-0 win over the New York Yankees on July 2, 1943. ... The Cardinals are the first team in major league history to score 12 runs in an inning to break a scoreless tie in the seventh inning or later.

The Cardinals tied a major league record for doubles in an inning with seven. The Boston Bees also had seven, against the Cardinals, in the first game of an August 25, 1936 doubleheader, at St. Louis' Sportsman Park. The Bees won that game 20-3.

* But what is the record for most runs by a team in any game in which it scores in only one inning?
