A daily glance inside the numbers from the world of sports:

Major League Baseball

• The Phillies scored 10 runs in the top of the ninth Saturday and tied a major-league record in the process. Before Saturday, only two other teams in major-league history had scored 10 runs in the ninth inning after having been held scoreless through the first eight frames.

On Sept. 26, 1912, the Reds scored 10 in the top of the ninth against the Cubs at West Side Park to take a 10-9 lead, but Chicago scored twice in the bottom half to win, 11-10. And on Aug. 15, 1962 the White Sox scored 10 in the top of the ninth against the Indians at Municipal Stadium and defeated Cleveland 10-2.

• Pat Burrell had the game-tying hit before things got out of hand in the ninth inning. It was his 25th RBI against the Marlins this season, the most by any player against any team in 2005.
