Arizona pitcher Micah Owings homered in the third inning at home against Sean Marshall of the Cubs.
This is the second consecutive game that Owings has homered in, which is not that unusual for a pitcher as Carlos Zambrano did it on two occasions last year. However, Owings is the first pitcher with THREE home runs in a two game span since Mike Hampton did it for the Rockies on June 5 and June 10, 2001. Hampton's homers came in three consecutive at bats.
Don Drysdale homered in three straight games in 1958 and Ken Brett homered in four straight games in 1973.
