| || 5-Hit Blitz by Minnesota's Lemon |
Thursday, June 10th, 1982
Chet Lemon was unstoppable, but the Minnesota Twins were not.
Despite his hitting heroics at Hubert H Humphrey Metrodome today, the Twins lost 5-3 to the Kansas City Royals. Lemon battered Kansas City for 5 hits in 6 at-bats. His only consolation will be a boost in his batting average and a brief mention in the record book.
Lemon just shook his head after the game, telling BNN reporters, "It's the team with the most runs that wins, not the most hits."
Chet Lemon flied out in the 2nd, singled in the 4th, singled in the 7th, singled in the 8th, singled in the 11th and hit an RBI double in the 13th.
Lemon on the season is batting .314 with 12 home runs. His totals include 38 RBIs and 39 runs scored. He has played in 60 games.
