Q: I’m sure the Philadelphia Phillies were involved in the highest-scoring game in major league baseball, but I don’t know with whom and what the final score was. — A.F., Dorchester, Pa.
A: On Aug. 25, 1922, the Phillies took on the Chicago Cubs. Combined, the teams scored 49 runs that day — surprising, considering there were just 51 hits.
The Cubs won the game 26-23.
Q: My question has been bothering me for a long time. You are my last hope. A tree is grown in Asia that is widely used in perfumes. Beside that, all I can remember is that it has a really strange name. Is this enough information for you to help me out? — T.M. North Platte, Neb.
A: I suspect you might be thinking of the ylang-ylang. Manufacturers have long used the tree’s fragrant flowers as a perfume ingredient.
