Comments on: 5 hits and 5 runs scored This and that about baseball stats. Tue, 16 Jul 2013 17:01:55 +0000 hourly 1 By: koma Fri, 27 Mar 2009 12:12:09 +0000 Here´s another 7 hits:
Rocky Colavito went 7-11 but scored only one single run

By: JDV Tue, 24 Mar 2009 10:58:32 +0000 Let me correct myself. Gutierrez' game was in '70...June 21. He scored only 3 runs in that game, though.

Cesar Gutierrez went 7-7 in a ‘71 game? I thought Stennet was the only one.

Jeter 6 6 5 5 one RBI vs. ARod 6 6 5 5 6 rbis says it all

Joe Adcock hits 4 home runs and a double, and scores 5 runs as well.

He hit 3 of his 11 HRs on the season in that game and scored 5 of his 50 runs, talk about boosting your stats. What amazes me is that that he did it from the 8-hole in the order, which is pleasant surprise for any manager to get form the bottom of your lineup.

By: JDV Mon, 23 Mar 2009 16:10:28 +0000 That's an interesting list. A couple of things that struck me -- in addition to the Royals striking twice (only four days apart!).

Only two -- Adrian Beltre and Rondell White -- hit for the cycle.

Ripken's game was 'post-streak'...pretty much his last hurrah.

Shawn Green's included a record-tying 4 home runs.

The only one on the list who drew a walk during the game was, of all people, Luis Polonia, although Berroa was also hit by a pitch. (Did either of those plate appearances account for one of their runs scored?)

I remember Rennie Stennet's amazing 7-7 game. I also remember Detroit's Cesar Gutierrez going 7-7 in a '71 game, but he must have scored fewer than 5 runs.

Good info.
