  • Home Run Hitting Pitchers

    In the Red Sox forum we're a little boggled by the fact that Bronson Arroyo just hit his 2nd homer in as many starts. Right now the question we're grappling with is, when was the last time a pitcher hit home runs in back-to-back starts? One member has floated Mike Hampton on June 5 & 10, 2001. Can anyone verify?

    I'm almost positive Hampton was the last pitcher to do it. Randy Wolf hit two in one game on 8/11/04 though. Ken Brett has the record with 4 starts in a row back in 1973 (6/9, 6/13, 6/18, 6/23).

      I can verify the consecutive games with an HR portion of that.

        Can I say Randy Wolf hit two homers in one game?

          I thought you were gonna say Randy Lerch, because I remember that, and Walt Terrell
          Mythical SF Chronicle scouting report: "That Jeff runs like a deer. Unfortunately, he also hits AND throws like one." I am Venus DeMilo - NO ARM! I can play like a big leaguer, I can field like Luzinski, run like Lombardi. The secret to managing is keeping the ones who hate you away from the undecided ones. I am a triumph of quantity over quality. I'm almost useful, every village needs an idiot.
