The Day’s Games are Home or Visitor Sweeps (or close to it)

On Tuesday, all 15 home teams won their games, a first in MLB history.

That got the VORG wondering about other “sweeps”, by either the home or visiting teams, based on the number of games on a day.

Thanks to the gamelogs from Retrosheet, here are the most wins on a single day by the home or visiting team (including double-headers) through 2014, and the most recent day on which it occurred:
