The 1962 Minnesota Twins. In only their second year, the Minnesota Twins improved to 91–71 in 1962, finishing second in the American League, five games short of the World Champion New York Yankees. Harmon Killebrew hit 48 home runs and drove in 126 and was the AL leader in both categories. Bob Allison hit 29 home runs, drove in 102 runs, and led the Twins in runs scored with 102. Camilo Pascual became the Twins' first 20-game winner and led the AL with 206 strikeouts. On July 18th, at a home game at Metropolitan Stadium, Twins made major league history by hitting two grand slam home runs in the same inning. It happened in the first inning when Bob Allison first sent one off of Cleveland Indians pitcher Barry Latman and then Harmon Killebrew followed later with a grand slam blast off of future Twins teammate Jim Perry.
