The second ranked team in 4A baseball lit up the scoreboard in record fashion Tuesday night. The Mason City High baseball team set a state record, scoring 31 runs in a single inning against Des Moines North as part of a 40-0 win in the first game of a CIML crossover doubleheader at Roosevelt Field.
After scoring five times in the first inning, Mason City sent 34 batters to the plate in the second inning, scoring the 31 runs off of 17 hits, 10 walks and four errors. The 31 runs eclipses the 30 runs scored by Dubuque Senior in 1975 and Essex in 1991 for the state record, and is also tied for the sixth best single-inning run total in national history.
The Mohawks also won game two by a score of 12-2 in five innings.
