Most Runs, Hits with Only Certain Types of Hits

Friend of the VORG Doug Kern tweeted this out early this morning:

That got me wondering what the records were for most hits and runs for a team in a game would be, based on each specific hit type or combination of hit types.  First, here are the hit records.  For example, the Dodgers set the record for most hits with all being singles when they amassed 22 on June 3, 1988 in a 13-5 win over Cincinnati.

And here are the records for most runs scored in a game with only specific hit types achieved. As an example, the Tigers set the record for most runs in a game (10) where they only had doubles and homers, in a 10-9 win on April 9, 1996:
