11 hits + 0 runs = New Marlins Record

      The Marlins hit another new low, collecting 11 hits yet failing to score in their 4-0 loss to the Cincinnati Reds. Never before in Marlins history has that happened. In fact, the previous team record for most hits in a game without a run being scored was nine.

     The last time any major league team had exactly 11 hits but came up empty was on July 17, 2010, when Washington had 11 hits in a shutout loss to the.....Marlins. Those were the days, my friend. The big-league record for most hits without managing to score: 15 by the 1918 Boston Braves, according to records kept by baseballreference.com

      In addition to the 11 hits, the Marlins also had three other batters reach, two on walks and another on a hit batsman. But they left 12 on base by going 1 for 10 with runners in scoring position.
