Power-less Surge

It's times like these I wish I had access to the Elias Sports Bureau's database...

On Thursday night, the Astros blew out the Cardinals 18-1, racking up 23 hits in the process. Prior to the ninth inning, when J.R. Towles hit a two-run home run, the Astros had scored 16 runs on 20 hits, consisting of 15 singles and five doubles. If that total had lasted, would/could it have set the record for most runs scored in a game without any home runs (or triples)?

Aug 28, 1992 - MIL 22, TOR 2

Paul Molitor hit a one out HR in the first, after that, the Brewers scored 20 runs on 29 hits (25 singles, 4 doubles), none of the home runs or triples. It doesn't totally fit your criteria, but it blows away the Astros game. I'm assuming if that game's out there, the Astros game wouldn't have been a record.

On a day in which my pathetic Pirates handed the "Cubbies" another easy win, I thought I'd look back at one of my childhood memory games. The Pirates beat Chicago, 22-0, back on Sept. 16, 1975, with Rennie Stennett going 7-for-7. The Pirates did hit two homers that day, so we can rule them out of the above comparison.
