Eleven runs in the first.
The all-time record for runs in a playoff inning.
Here’s the video, on the new Big Inning channel:
Only three teams in MLB history have scored ten runs in a postseason inning:
(1) The 1929 Athletics, losing 8-0 to the Cubs.
(2) The 1968 Tigers, setting up a classic Game 7.
(3) The 2019 Cardinals, Game 5 of the NLDS, first inning—against this very same Braves team.
So today, Braves fans relive their most awful postseason memory. And the Dodgers set a new all-time record.
Eleven runs. One inning. The first inning.
The Dodgers have jumped out to a 11-0 lead in the top of the 1st inning in Game 3 of the NLCS.
That is the most runs scored in a single inning in postseason history. pic.twitter.com/lhbWJ79ERD

Ten of those runs came with two outs. From that point on, the string of at-bats went like this:
Turner grounds out.
Muncy grounds out.
Turner gets hit by pitch.
Muncy hits a grand slam.
Dodgers lead 11-0.
And the fans, remotely in Los Angeles, mask-wearingly in Arlington, are loving it.
