Detroit 11, Colorado 5: Tigers score in every inning

The Tigers scored in all eight innings in which they batted. According to STATS, inc., the Tigers scored in all eight innings of a nine-inning home game for the first time since 1912.

Per, this is the 7th team to score in all 8 innings they batted in the AL (none in all 9).  7 NL teams have scored during EVERY Inning of a 9 Inning Game, but only 3 since 1901.

With my beloved Detroit Tigers bullpen, scoring in every inning is pretty much an imperative...

I'd expect it to happen a bit more often. MLB teams score in what, 30% of their innings? .3^8 is about 1/15,000. Given 2430 games per season (4860 team games), it seems like it should happen once every 4-7 years or so on average.

But how many team games go only 8 innings? In every game, 1 team will go 9, and the other will go 9 about half the time, so not 4860 per season, but more like 1200.

I saw it happen once in Diamond Mind when I was testing my 1918 season disk before I released it.

Nice rally by the A's down 26-0 to make it close in the end.

Supposedly the Rockies have twice scored in every inning. Once in Coors Field across 8 innings (where'd you'd expect it to happen) and once in Wrigley over 9:

The Rockies, coincidentally, did it twice. They needed nearly every rally they had to hold off the Padres in a 15-11 win at Coors Field on Sept. 24, 2001. On May 5, 1999, then-manager Jim Leyland's Rockies scored in all nine innings they batted -- never scoring more than two runs in any of them -- in a 13-6 win over the Cubs at Wrigley Field.

I went back to find this game, in which the Cardinals scored in all nine innings and which I remember watching on TV.

And then I noticed what I'm 99% sure is an error in the bb-ref pbp: The error in the ninth inning that set up the run that allowed the Cardinals to complete the feat was a dropped pop-up, not on a botched groundball.

I want to see someone do it in all 10.

an interesting point on the raw probabilities. Probably a function of a couple of things -- (a) most of these games will be blowouts so the winning team is putting out a worse line-up, the umps are trying to get the game over, etc. (b) The p of scoring in an inning may vary pretty substantially based on who's actually batting. It may not seem like much but if the probabilities go .4 .2 .4 .2 .4 .2 .4 .2 instead of .3s all the way across, the overall p is cut by about 40% ... still seems it should happen more often though.
