In The 1996 NLCS, The Atlanta Braves Handed Two Blowouts To The St. Louis Cardinals

Yesterday, we checked out the most lopsided wins in ALCS history. Thirteen teams won their games by nine runs or more.

The NLCS sports similar stats.

But two NL games in particular are off the charts – and they both happened in the same (fated) season – 1996.

The 1995 reigning champion Atlanta Braves won Game 1 of the 1996 NLCS, then lost the next three games to the St. Louis Cardinals.

The Braves followed that up in what would be the biggest blowout in NLCS history – a 14-0 annihilation in Game 5. They won Game 6, too, and finished it all off with an even bigger win: 15-0 in Game 7.

Atlanta would lose to the New York Yankees in the World Series, ushering in that team’s latest dynasty and the beginning of what could be called the Derek Jeter era.
