Does anyone know what the Sox record for homers in consecutive games is?

The record is five games. Carlos tied it today. Frank has tied the record, twice. Ron Kittle also has homered in five straight games.

Don't forget Greg Lusinski, graduate of Notre Dame High.

They said Frank had 6 in 5 games once and did 5 in 5 another time. Kittle and some other guys too. Go for 6 C Lee!

Dale Long had an eight-game streak, and that remains the National League record. But I think Don Mattingly broke it n the 1980s. The number 11 comes to mind, but I'm on the road and can't look it up.

I'm almost positive it is 8 because I remember when Griffey had 7 in a row a few years ago (he was still with Seattle). ESPN cut into its coverage every time he batted in the 8th game. He failed to hit one that night.

My apologies. According to Baseball-almanac.com, Griffey Jr., Long and Mattingly all had eight consecutive games with at least one home run. I may have been confused because Mattingly had 10 home runs during the streak. Griffey and Long had just the eight. Unless I misread the Web site.

It's easier to remember stuff when the Sox are involved.

Well there you go, I guess he did hit one that night after all...

He obviously didn't keep the streak going tonight, but that's alright. It is important that he keep it in perspective and keep doing what made him successful as a hitter and that is hitting the ball to the gaps and taking what the pitcher gives him. A definite sign of maturity, IMO: In the middle of a HR streak, Carlos still went the other way twice tonight, once hitting the ball to the track in RF.
