Most home runs in a game, one team
Permalink  
 


What is your record for most home runs in a game by one team?

Or, by both clubs?

The Giants and Dodgers have renewed their eternal rivalry in my 1934 replay, at Ebbets Field.

The Brooks nipped King Carl Hubbell, scoring on consecutive two-out hits in the bottom of the ninth to take a 6-5 squeeker in the opener.

Travis Jackson and Mel Ott homered for the Giants...but that was just the warm-up.

The next "day," the Giants cut loose, in full, with a seven-homer barrage as they swamped the Bums, 15-8, a slugfest that opened a twinbill.

Tony Cuccinello hit a pair of four-baggers for the Dodgers.  But the G-Men got circuit clouts from Ott (2), Hank Leiber, Jo-Jo Moore, Blondy Ryan, Hughie Critz (!), and Gus Mancuso.

And that almost wasn't all.  With the sacks packed in the top of the sixth, Freddie Fitzsimmons (one of three 7N hitters on the Giants' staff) came oh-so-close, when I rolled a 4-7 on pitcher Ownie Carrol's card.

The result was a double play grounder.  However, 4-9 is an N-HR 1-5, DO 6-20.  What a story that would have been!

Oddly, things died down in the nightcap.  Buzz Boyle hit the only homer, for the Dodgers.  And Lonny Frey hit another for the Brooklyners in the series finale.

That seven-homer game (by one team) was the first time I can recall doing it.  I also can't recall if I have ever had homers from as many as six different batters on one team in any other game.

Even in the infamous 37-11 Yankee win over Chicago in my 1924 season, in which their were 11 total home runs hit, the Bombers got "just" six -- four from Ruth, and two from Meusel.

The Sox got five, but they were all from different hitters: Harry Hooper, Bibb Falk, Ray Schalk, Aaron Ward, and Eddie Collins.

Wow.  Seven homeruns in one game by one team!  That's amazing.  I've had some wild ones, but not one that reaches that level.

Big game seajaw! The Comets and Lakers squared off 7/14/10 and they went deep 9x. The Comets only had 6 though.

Off the top of my head, I had this one where Bilko and Zimmer BOTH hit 3 in a game.....Dodgers hit a total of 9, but by only FOUR players.  Braves had 3 for a combined total of 12..........

i will have to check back to see about some of my 3 HR games and the 4 HR by jones, to see if any of their teammates also went off the same nights, they get overshadowed in my mind by the individual performances, i didnt even think to see how many total by the teams.

That is definitely one for the ages. The only 4 homer game I ever in Strat and Johnny Bench did it rather quickly, especially since I've not seen one in 40 years. By the way Bench was not my catcher on my Team-I came back in the late innnings to win the game!

Hard to believe, but it happened. Still in shock, but I'm pretty sure it happened. Today, in my Legends (all-time franchise) league, the Orioles (/Browns) hit TWELVE home runs in one game! I've never seen (or heard of) anything like it. They pounded the Indians 19-2 and every Oriole hitter except team HR leader Frank Robinson, ironically, went deep! Crazy. George Sisler led off the game with a homer and added another later. Brooks Robinson also had 2. Gus Triandos hit 3! The rest of the lineup that homered (only once each): Ken Williams, Boog Powell, Cal Ripken, Bobby Grich and Paul Blair. I'm pretty sure I was playing C&D basic, but somehow it must have switched to slow-pitch softball mode! At least in the top half of every inning. Strat never ceases to amaze.

It never ceases to amaze any of us, I dare say.

But...a dozen?????

That's an amazing total. Sometimes you're lucky to 12 hits in a game let alone 12 homers WOW.

And in an all-time franchise league they were probably facing pretty decent pitchers
