Synonyms of "Tally" and their differences

Q: What is the difference between The nationwide tally hit a record for the second day in a row. and The nationwide tally hit a record for two days in a row. ?
A: The first sentence sounds better in my opinion.

Also, “for” is needed in the first sentence but not the second. The second sentence implies that the record was hit twice in a row, so removing “for” would still retain the intended meaning. However, the first sentence would almost sound like the record wasn’t hit until the second day, so removing “for” would risk changing the meaning.
