Lou Gehrig hits four consecutive home runs
From 1929-1931, when his A’s captured three consecutive American League pennants, pitcher George Earnshaw was among the game’s best, averaging 22 wins per season. But this particular matchup at Shibe Park was one of the worst outings of his career, thanks in large part to Gehrig. In the first inning, Gehrig launched a two-run homer into left-center field. Then, Gehrig followed up with solo homers off Earnshaw in the fourth and fifth frames.
