Astros Tie MLB Record With 5 HRs in Single Inning Against Red Sox

Nathan Eovaldi is on the wrong side of history. In the 2nd inning of the Red Sox-Astros contest at Fenway Park, Eovaldi became just the third pitcher in MLB history to give up five home runs in a single frame. It was Houston’s first 5-HR inning in team history, including jacks from Yuli Gurriel, Michael Brantley, Jeremy Pena, Kyle Tucker and Yordan Alvarez. One fan at Fenway caught two of the home run balls — in the same inning! Eovaldi was yanked before the 2nd inning concluded. He allowed eight hits and six runs with five homers and zero strikeouts in a brutal outing.

Dingers in Double-AHere’s a fun one. The Tulsa Drillers smashed nine home runs against the Amarillo Sod Poodles Tuesday night in a 15-12 slugfest. Amarillo hit four homers of their own — 13 total in the game. That’s the most in a Minor League game since 2005.
