I can’t recall anyone hitting more than four in a row. From AP-
West Virginia State’s Bo Darby hit home runs in five consecutive at-bats over two games, including four in one contest.
The sophomore outfielder homered in his first four trips to the plate Monday against Salem International. He also connected in his final at-bat Saturday against the University of Charleston.
A double and a single in his two previous plate appearances Saturday gave Darby seven straight hits.
Darby homered twice more in the second game of Monday’s doubleheader, giving him six for the day with 14 RBIs. He has 18 home runs this season.
The NCAA doesn’t keep Division II records for home runs in consecutive at-bats. St. Edwards’ Josh Hamilton holds the Division II records of five home runs in one game set against Oklahoma Panhandle in April 2003.
That’s a shame the NCAA doesn’t keep records. A great deal of sports history is going to be lost as a result.
