Marlins, Rockies Set Curious Home Run Record

The Marlins ended up on the wrong end of history Monday.

They and the Rockies combined for eight home runs in Colorado’s 5-3 victory, making it the most runs ever scored in a major-league game in which solo homers accounted for all of the scoring.

Eight solo home runs is still ten short of the entertainment record held jointly by Elvis Presley and Mariah Carey.
