Who doesn’t love a good ol’ fashion blowout in Minnesota? On this date in 1967, that’s exactly what happened as the South Siders trounced the Twins 14-1 at the Metropolitan Stadium. The team ended up scoring 12 of their 14 runs in the last three innings to go along with 21 hits on the day.
The real story out of all of this, though, is Tommy McCraw‘s performance. This first-baseman went 3-6 with 2 three-run home runs and 1 two-run dinger. He finished the game with 8 RBIs and three runs scored. Do the math and those 8 RBIs are 66.7% of the team’s runs!
Unfortunately, this was a game I couldn’t dig up any highlights for likely due to the time period. The next best thing I have to offer is the box score, which can be found here. I highly recommend giving it a look.
