Related to this question, I'm wondering how many times in MLB history a team has hit home runs on consecutive pitches. That is 2, 3, or 4 home runs in as many pitches.

Please provide the team, date and players hitting the homers.

On September 18th, 2006, J.D. Drew, Russell Martin, and Marlon Anderson hit home runs on 3 consecutive pitches. Drew hit a home run off Jon Adkins. Martin and Anderson hit home runs off Trevor Hoffman.

I checked all of the instances of teams hitting 4 consecutive home runs, and this was the only one I found in which 3 were hit on consecutive pitches. However, there were 3 instances in the 1960's that didn't have pitch count available.

It's very likely that 3 is the record.
