When Molina hit one of his few triples with the Toronto Blue Jays on August 17, 2006, the whole Blue Jays dugout started laughing. Molina said he saw them out of the corner of his eye and started laughing hard as well. He had not hit a triple since 2000.
Playing for the San Francisco Giants on May 7, 2007, Molina hit a disputed two-run homer in the 5th inning against the New York Mets then drilled a three-run shot later in the inning. He was the first Giant since Willie McCovey thirty years earlier to hit two home runs in one inning.
On September 26, 2008, Molina hit a home run that was initially ruled a single, and he was immediately removed for a pinch runner, Emmanuel Burriss. Upon review, the hit was ruled a home run, but Molina had already exited the game, so Burriss finished his home run trot for him. Molina was credited with the home run and 2 RBI, but Burriss was credited with the run scored. (The BR box score and the game logs for Molina and Burriss do not correctly reflect this unique event, but their season and career statistics are listed correctly.)
