Most runs in a MLB game?

My Google-fu is weak tonight…

After watching today’s runs bonanza in Chicago, and with the Yankees leading the Mets 16-6, the question came up: What is the most runs scored by two teams in a regulation 9 inning MLB game?


According to this site, it would be 49, Cubs 26, Phillies 23. August 25, 1922.

Interestingly, there was a game in the early-mid 80’s that ended something like 23-22, also featuring the Cubs over the Phillies (going on memory here).
