Know your baseball history: May 5 Rockies score in every inning

15 years ago the Colorado Rockies pulled off one of the rarest feats in the game, scoring in all nine innings of a Major League Baseball game. In fact they were only the third team since 1900 to tally at least one run in each frame.

The 1999 Rockies were not a very good team. Jim Leyland led the squad to a last place finish in the National League West, 18 games below .500. One thing the Rockies could do was generate some offense, they were second in the N.L. in runs scored with 906.

On May 5 they were playing the Chicago Cubs at Wrigley Field and they scored consistently, just one or two runs in every inning, and beat the Cubs 13-6. The stars of the game were Larry Walker with four runs scored, Neifi Perez with three runs batted in and Chris Sexton also with three RBI. The Cubs helped out the Rockies by committing three errors. Starting pitcher Pedro Astacio appreciated all the run support and picked up his second win on the young season.

The other two teams that were able to push a run across the plate in every inning are the 1923 New York Giants and the 1964 St. Louis Cardinals.
