Did you know: Red Sox's 22-run game

The Red Sox's 22-10 drubbing of the Mariners on Saturday at Fenway Park was historic for a number of reasons. Did you know:

• The Red Sox have scored 37 runs in their past two games (after beating Seattle, 15-1, on Friday night). They scored 50 in their previous 10 games this month and 82 in all of May.

• They have at least 15 runs and 21 hits in back-to-back games for the second time in the past 100 years (also June 7-8, 1950). No other team in baseball has done it since Boston last did. The Red Sox outscored the St. Louis Browns by 41 runs in those two games in 1950.

Red Sox score five in the 2nd

• It was a franchise high in runs allowed for the Mariners, according to ESPN Stats & Info.

• The only other 22-10 score in baseball history came on June 5, 1912, between the Giants and Reds at the Polo Grounds.

• Red Sox outfielder Jackie Bradley Jr. went 5-for-6 with three doubles, two home runs, five runs scored and seven RBIs. According to the Providence Journal, Bradley is the first player in Red Sox history with five extra-base hits in a game.

The only other players in MLB history to record two homers, five extra-base hits, five runs and seven RBIs in a game are Shawn Green (2002) and Joe Adcock (1954).

Bradley Jr.'s second homer

Bradley is also the first No. 9 hitter with five-plus hits and seven-plus RBIs in a game.

• According to ESPN Stats & Info, the last time the Red Sox had four four-run innings was June 8, 1950, when they set (at the time) the Major League scoring record in a 29-4 win against the Browns.

• Boston has back-to-back 20-hit games for the first time since 1988 (June 19 at Baltimore and June 20 at Cleveland). The Red Sox also have scored 15 runs in back-to-back games for the first time since 1998 (July 2 vs. Montreal and July 3 vs. the White Sox).

• It is the first time a team scored 20 or more runs while allowing 10 or more in the same game since Aug. 21, 2009, when the Yankees beat the Red Sox, 20-11.

• It is the Red Sox's first win on Boston fan Ben Affleck's birthday since his hit movie, "Good Will Hunting," was released on Jan. 9, 1998. The Red Sox were previously 0-15 on Aug. 15 in that span, with their last victory coming in 1997.

• The Mariners were outscored by 26 runs over the last two games combined, but it's hardly the most devastating run differential over a two-game span, even in recent memory. The Orioles were beaten by the Rangers, 30-3 and 9-7, in a single day when Texas swept an Aug. 22, 2007, doubleheader.
