"We didn't run on passed balls; we didn't take extra bases or any of those kinds of things," Boyer said. "I even asked the umpire, 'What do you want us to do?'
48 hits + 13 walks + 11 hbp = 72 batters on base. 6 outs (since it was the 3rd inning) and 65 runs leaves ONE unaccounted for batter. So either 1 out in the 3rd, or 1 left on base when the umps finally called it.
Either they were smashing home runs left and right or the coach has a different definition of "taking extra bases" to end up with at most one player left on base.
But damn, how bad does that other team have to be? You'd figure even the worst team would accidentally get 3 outs before 31 runs were scored in an inning.
eta: possibly missing errors here though I'm sure the scorekeepers fell asleep after the first so there might not have been any
