Royals starter Luke Hudson (5-4) was abysmal. He allowed the first 10 batters to reach base and surrendered 11 runs on eight hits in 1/3 inning. No pitcher has allowed 11 runs in the first inning since 1897, when Brooklyn scored 12 against Boston's Kid Nichols (All Headline News)
It doesn't say how many outs Kid Nichols got, but if it was more than one, it is a record as far as I know.
