Did the Braves set a new record?

I couldn't find any confirmation elsewhere, but the chart here: http://www.baseball-almanac.com/recbooks/rb_strike2.shtml has the NL/ML record for most strikeouts in a doubleheader by both teams is 41, shared by three different teams.

Yesterday in the first game the Braves struck out 16 times, the Mets 11 (27 total strikeouts that game).

In the second game the Braves struck out out 8 times, the Mets 9 (17 total strikeouts that game).

Total, between the two teams, there were 44 strikeouts, breaking the Major League record. Incidentally, the Braves struck out by themselves 24 times, coming close to the single-team record for strikeouts in a doubleheader of 26.
