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.
