Luis Robert, Jr. recently finished quite the home run tear, going deep in four consecutive games. On the season, he’s already accumulated 12 dingers (one behind Adolis Garcia for the A.L. lead) while logging an .893 OPS and amassing 2.2 bWAR.
Looking back through recent White Sox history, this is the first time a White Sox batter has homered in at least four consecutive games since 2017; before that, the feat was accomplished in 2013. Suffice to say, this isn’t exactly a common occurrence for the franchise.
Today’s Sporcle will test you on other instances where a White Sox batter has gone deep in at least four consecutive games: in all, there are 29 player-seasons. How many can you name? Good luck!
- I’ve allotted 10 minutes for completion attempts
- For hints, I’ve provided the season, the number of games in a row, and the position of the player.
Useless information to amaze, annoy, confuse, and/or confound your friends and family:
- The average triple-slash of the players on this list is, as expected, robusto: .424/.484/1.299
- Just one player on this list also stole a base during their homer streak (2013).
- As you likely already know, the MLB record is 8 consecutive games with a home run, most recently accomplished by Ken Griffey, Jr., in 1993.
- Mike Trout is the most recent player to come closest to that eight-game mark, hitting a home run in seven consecutive games last season.
