Twins record on June 20 games is
1986 – A six run sixth inning that has home runs by Tim Laudner and pinch-hitter Randy Bush proves to be just enough for the Twins to beat the visiting Indians at the Metrodome and up the Twins record to 28-38. Kent Hrbek goes 3 for 5 with a home run and a double, scores twice and knocks in three. The Twins hit five home runs off Indians pitchers. Box Score
1965 – The largest crowd to ever watch the Twins play on the road, 71,245 New York fans watched their beloved Yankees get swept by the Minnesota Twins 6-4 and 7-4 in a doubleheader as the Twins marched towards their first ever World Series. In the first game Minnesota came back with one in the eighth on a Killebrew home run and two in the ninth on a passed ball and a wild pitch to beat the Bombers 6-4. Al Worthington got the win and Jim Kaat got a rare save. In game 2 Harmon Killebrew was 2 for 5 with a home run and 3 RBI. Dick Stigman pitched the final 3.1 innings for starter Dave Boswell and didn’t allow a hit earning the save.
1961 – With the score tied 4-4 at the Met against the Baltimore Orioles, Julio Becquer is called upon to lead off the bottom of the ninth as a pinch-hitter against Jack Fisher and he proceeds to hit a home run and become not only the first Twin to pinch hit a home run but also becomes the first Twins player in history to hit a walk-off home run as the Twins win 5-4. Harmon Killebrew also hit a home run in the game and Chuck Stobbs who pitched to three batters to retire the side in the ninth picked up an easy win. Box Score
