Great Baseball Trivia

This seems to be a week for baseball posts!

I just caught up with a week-old story...on April 22nd the Boston Red Sox tied a major league record, becoming the fifth team in baseball history to hit four consecutive home runs in a single inning.

The last time it was done was by the Los Angeles Dodgers last September, as chronicled in my post "Back to Back to Back to Back...and Then Some!"

What is really unique about the Red Sox's streak is that the second home run was hit by the very same batter who hit the second home run in the Dodgers' September streak, J.D. Drew. He certainly now holds an unusual place in the baseball record books!
