Multiple 3-HR games

Tonight (checks clock) – OK, yesterday (gosh darn insomnia!) I saw Aramis Ramirez of the Cubs hit three homers in one game. It’s the fourth time in his career he’s done so. Well, so let’s look it up: who has hit the most games with three homers (or more – the source I’m using includes four homer games on the list) in one game:

Six games with at least three homers in them

Johnny Mize and Sammy Sosa.

Five games

Carlos Delgado, Mark McGwire, Joe Carter, and Dave Kingman.

Four games

Aramis Ramirez, Albert Pujols, Steve Finley, Barry Bonds, Larry Parrish (!?!?!?), Willie Stargell, Ernie Banks, Ralph Kiner, Babe Ruth (includes post-season, as is the case for the others on this list), and Lou Gehrig.

Three games

Mark Teixeira, Alfonso Soriano, Alex Rodriquez, Larry Walker, Juan Gonzalez, Albert Belle, Jeff Bagwell, Eddie Murray, Ben Oglivie, George Brett, Cecil Fielder, Johnny Bench, Mike Schmidt, Harold Baines, Reggie Jackson, Willie Mays, Rocky Colavito, Boog Powell, Willie McCovey, Ted Williams, Goose Goslin, and Joe DiMaggio.

Two games

Johnny Gomes, Andrew Jones, Frank Thomas, Euribiel Durazo, Todd Helton, Luis Gonzalez, Jose Valentin, Geoff Jenkins, Jeromy Burnitz, Shawn Green, Manny Ramirez, Brett Boone, Aaron Boone, Richie Sexson, Nomar Garciaparra, Bobby Higginson, Vinny Castilla, Mo Vaughn, Jim Thome, Miguel Tejada, Edgar Martinez, Darnell Coles, Geronimo Berroa, Doug DeCinces (both in one week), Jim Rice, Jose Canseco, Cory Snyder, Darryl Strawberry, Glenn Davis, Andre Dawson, Eric Davis, Gary Carter, Al Oliver, Claudell Washington, Roberto Clemente, Bobby Murcer, John Mayberry, Wilie Horton, Jimmy Wynn, Johnny Callison, Stan Musial, Don Demeter, Gus Bell, Duke Snider, Dusty Rhoades, Hank Sauer, Pinky Higgins, Pat Seerey, Hal Trosky, Tony Lazzeri, Jimmie Foxx, and George Kelly.

Hopefully I didn’t miss anyone. Or list anyone twice.

Great list. So you think Larry Parrish in the 4 times case is the biggest surprise on the list?
