Most Runs the Same as Hits for Both Teams in a Game

I noticed a bit of a statistical quirk in Wednesday’s Marlins/Rangers game:

1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 R H E
Miami Marlins 2 0 0 9 0 0 2 5 4 22 22 0
Texas Rangers 1 0 0 1 0 3 0 3 2 10 10 0

Despite the high score, both teams ended up with the same number of hits as their runs.  I wondered if 32 runs was the record for most combined runs with such an occurrence.  I consulted the Retrosheet gamelogs, and found one game that beat it and one game that tied it, as follows:

date vteam hteam vruns vh hruns hh
19550423 CHA KC1 29 29 6 6
19300511 PHA CLE 7 7 25 25
