Just a day after Paul Konerko had a 3-HR game, Andruw Jones of the Rangers has one of his own against the Angels.

Jones has a chance for 4 HR's tonight.

It's not as rare as you might think. Off the top of my head, I can remember John Mayberry and Don Baylor having three-home run games on consecutive days in 1975, Dave Kingman and Bill Robinson doing it in consecutive games in 1976, and Dave Kingman and Dale Murphy doing it in consecutive days in 1979. I think Cecil Cooper and Dave Kingman also did it in consecutive days in 1979. It probably happens more frequently these days.

I remember Orlando Cepeda and Johnny Bench having three-homer games on the same Sunday afternoon in 1970. And, of course, on the Sunday afternoon in 1996 when Frank Thomas hit three home runs off of Tim Wakefield in Boston, Benito Santiago had a three-home run game.
