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.

  • Tied by the Yankees in the 4th inning against the Blue Jays on September 17, 2020 by Brett Gardner (5th of the season), DJ LeMahieu (10th) and Luke Voit (20th) on consecutive pitches. In addition, Giancarlo Stanton (4th) and Gleyber Torres (3rd) also hit dingers for a total of 5 home runs (7 total runs) in the inning. The 5 home runs in an inning also ties a major league record. – Jamie Winterhalt Sep 18 '20 at 0:49

  • This is what I get for asking the question, the Yanks do it to my BJs! – alamoot Sep 18 '20 at 14:26
  • Know how you feel - I'm a Jays fan too. I was at their first home game in 1977 - they beat the White Sox after they cleared the field of snow with a Zamboni! – Jamie Winterhalt Sep 19 '20 at 15:34
  • That's AMAZING!!! – alamoot Sep 19 '20 at 15:37
