Record-setting HR streak

The Twins hammered a team-record eight home runs on Aug. 29, 1963, against the Senators — two by Vic Power and Harmon Killebrew and one each by Bob Allison, Jimmie Hall, Bernie Allen and Rich Rollins. The Twins came up one short of that record Tuesday night against San Diego, but accomplished a major-league first by hitting one in each of the first seven innings:
