Huge Inning Lifting D-backs


The D-backs just completed the highest-scoring inning in franchise history.

The previous record, eight, was slaughtered when the D-backs put up 13 in the bottom of the fourth today. That photo above was taked right before pitcher Edwin Jackson hit his first career homer, a deep blast to left-center. Chris Young and Kelly Johnson also homered in the inning.

Here’s a quick rundown of the fourth in which they scored 13 runs with eight hits and nearly batted around the lineup twice:
