Hamilton Hits Four Bombs, Still No Homerun Cycle.

Last night Josh Hamilton hit four 2 run homeruns, becoming the 16th person to make the 4 HR list and only the second to have four-of-a-kind. Interestingly, Elvis Andrus was the man on base for each homerun. Hamilton also added a double to go 5 for 5 with 18 total bases, setting the AL record.

Two years ago I wrote about whether any player had ever hit a “cycle” of homeruns: a solo shot, two run homer, three run homer and a grand slam. There’s lots of interesting notes about the various four homer games there.
