Six Hits in One 9-Inning Game
Any hitter would be happy with a game where they went three for four, or even three for five, but no player regularly comes into a game expecting to collect three or four hits. Just think of the pride one has when he ends up with six hits in one nine-inning game.
As if the hits were not sensational enough, some players like to add another feat to their already fabulous day:
Larry Twitchell, Sam Thompson and Ian Kinsler each hit for the cycle while they collected six hits.
Shawn Green had four of his six hits go for home runs.
Wilbert Robinson and Rennie Stennett didnít settle for six hits, they went seven for seven.
Cal McVey liked his six hits so much, he did it again three days later.
All of the players listed below defied the odds, bolstered their averages, and generally ruined a pitcher's day by going the distance, and hitting safely six times in nine innings, nothing short of amazing.
