1961 Game 26: Los Angeles Angels (9-14) @ Minnesota Twins (13-12)

Saturday May 13, 1961

Twins 13, Angels 6

The Twins won back-to-back games for the first time in almost three weeks. The 13-6 score makes the game look like a cake walk, but it was anything but. The two teams were actually tied at the seventh inning stretch. Harmon Killewbrew’s eighth home run of the season led off the seventh, and gave the Twins a 7-6 lead.

The team pulled away in the eighth inning. Bob Allison led off with a solo home run, his second round-tripper of the game. A walk and four hits later, the Twins had a 13-6 lead. Allison knocked in five runs in total to take the team lead in RBI.
