Nice season. It was July 10.

The three of them hit back-to-back-to-back homers in the seventh inning. Stargell had two homers and three doubles. Final score: Pirates 20, Braves 10. Hank Aaron homered twice for the Braves. Man, 1970 was such a nutty high-offense year, especially compared with 1968.

I kept a scorecard and have never seen anything visually like it. The Pirates as a team had 10 runs on 16 hits, but the other 15 Pirates who wreaked havoc on said scorecard amassed only 3 runs on 6 hits. There were numbers and scratches all over that half of the card, sure, but then there were those adjacent two solid rows of filled-in graphite diamonds.

Not only did Jones and McCutchen each have 5 hits. They also accounted for 7 runs scored and 7 runs batted in. McCutchen stole 2 bases. They had 17 total bases combined. McCutchen stole 2 bases and walked once. As a Cubs fan, losing that game was terrible. But watching two hitters so keyed in at the same time was pretty amazing. They saw 49 combined pitches, and never did it look like they were going to be retired.

And another fun little fact from that game: in a 10-6 game, with 11 plate appearances combined, neither team's leadoff spot reached base. Iwamura was 0-6, Theriot 0-4, and Fukudome PH 0-1.

Most players with 5 or more hits in a game: 4, Philadelphia vs Louisville, 17 Aug 1894. AL record: 3, Detroit vs Washington, 30 July 1917, and the three games from the 1930s already listed by Andy. The 1933 game was 12 innings.

How can I find a report of most consecutive games for a team having a player get 2+ hits in a game?
Not the whole team and not a specific player but any player for a team...

The Brewers infield set an MLB record with most hits in one game by an infield with 18. Listach 4, Gantner 2, Jaha 2, Seitzer 5 and Fletcher 5.

Five players in all had five or more hits, led by Johnny Burnett of the Indians, who had nine. That's the record. The Indians lost. Eddie Rommel, who gave up twenty-nine hits (eight of them by Burnett) and fourteen runs in seventeen innings of relief, got the win. It was his last major league win.

He was nineteen years old, and it was his first major league game.
