BOOM! BOOM! BOOM! Go the Brewers*

Ricky Weeks, J.J. Hardy, and Ryan Braun led off the first inning for the Brewers in Cincinnati against Pete Dumatrait with consecutive home runs.

That is the third time that is happened in major league history. All of the games have happened in the NL.

April 13, 1987 - Marvell Wynne, Tony Gwynn, and John Kruk of the Padres led off the bottom of the first against Roger Mason of the Giants with three straight homers.

May 28, 2003 - Rafael Furcal, Mark DeRosa, and Gary Sheffield led off the bottom of the first against Jeff Austin of the Reds with three straight homers.

Prince Fielder and Corey Hart followed their teammates homers with singles and Dumatrait was pulled after 12 pitches.

UPDATE - (Braun and Weeks now both have two home runs in the game.)

So here's a question: what is the shortest stint, pitch wise, for a starter in MLB history?

There have been several instances where the starter lasted one pitch and then got injured.

This guy was notable because the reliever got credit for a shutout, but not a complete game.

2 Bob, that's amazing. I never knew you could get a shutout without a complete game! To paraphrase Tim Kurkjian, that's why baseball is such a great game.

Only my voice isn't shriveling.

I watched that game on TV when I was living in Berkeley.

I think Tim Kurkjian, according to his book, is also about 5'4" and weighs around 110-120 lbs.

4 I actually like Kurkjian a lot. He's probably my favorite BBTN panelist. You have to appreciate anyone who loves the game that much.
