Arai Home Run Streak

Discussion in the Records and Milestones forum
Arai Home Run Streak
Hiroshima's Arai hit a home run in today's game with the Dragons, making it five consecutive games he has hit a home run. Can anyone give us information on records for home runs in consecutive games?

Both Oh (Giants) and Bass (Hanshin) hit home runs in seven consecutive games in 1972 and 1986 respectively. 10 players have hit home runs in six consecutive games. I'll have to come back to this some time to put up a chart. For reference, Seibu's Cabrera hit home runs in six games in a rwo in August of 2003, the Giants' Abe in April of 2004, and last year's Triple Crown winner Matsunaka (Daiei) in July of 2004.

Thanks. Arai has now made it six in six with a two run shot in the 6th inning against Hanshin (June 28, 2005).

This is a site about Pro Yakyu (Japanese Baseball), not about who the next player to go over to MLB is. It's a community of Pro Yakyu fans who have come together to share their knowledge and opinions with the world. It's a place to follow teams and individuals playing baseball in Japan (and Asia), and to learn about Japanese (and Asian) culture through baseball.

It is my sincere hope that once you learn a bit about what we're about here that you will join the community of contributors.
