    When's the Last Time This Happened....

    The Nationals have hit 4 straight HRs today in the 3rd inning. When's the last time a team has went back-to-back-to-back-to-back?

    Sounds like maybe the Nats got smart and had all their players sew "Tebow" on the back of their jerseys.

    We're in the 4th....Things haven't gotten better for the Brewers....Nationals are now up to 8 HRs today. 15-1.

    MLB record is 10. Can they hit 3 more?

    I seem to remember a time within the last 15 years the Reds did it? Maybe it was someone else in the central.

    They did it in 1999. They hit 9 vs the Phillies on 9/4/1999. I looked that game up and they won 22-3. HR by Aaron Boone, Damitri Young, Jeff Hammonds, Eddie Taubensee (2), Greg Vaughn, Pokey Reese, Brian Johnson, and Mark Lewis. Stan Belinda got a save in that game, how does that happen? were the rules different then than they are now?

    Better yet, are they hitting off Redlegs staff? Doesn't matter if it's at GABP or not.

    Not to thread jack, but what about the Reds turning a triple play the other night and a run scored on the play. I'm sure that is rare as well.

    I think I saw where it has only happened four times.
