The gang over at Talking Chop have scoured the stats from last night's bizarre / wonderful extra innings walkoff win for the Braves, who rallied from a 6-0 deficit and then a 12-8 gap to beat Philadelphia with a Chipper Jones shot in the 11th inning.
For a complete list of all the weird firsts and "first-since" stats from last night, check out Talking Chop. Here's a few fun facts from the guys:
- This was the Braves' 4th win since 1918 when allowing 13+ runs, and the 2nd in the last 60 years.
- It was the highest-scoring extra-inning game in the National League since July 4, 1985, when the Mets outlasted the Braves, 16-13, in 19 innings.
- Chipper Jones and Jason Giambi each hit game-ending home runs on Wednesday. It was the first day in major-league history on which two players age 40 or older hit walk-off homers.
