Baseball History? 5 Home Runs Hit In Succesion In D-III Game

4/7/08 in NCAA Baseball   |   SOS   |   respect


Yesterday at the University of Whitewater-Wisconsin in the first game of a doubleheader between UW-Whitewater and UW-Oshkosh, the score was 5-1 in favor of Oshkosh. The leadoff hitter in the bottom of the fifth for Whitewater singled and was picked off of first base when he started heading for second because he mistakenly thought the batter had gotten ball four. That must have angered the bats of Whitewater as the next five, yes I said five, hitters all hit home runs. Back-to-back-to-back-to-back-to-back home runs. Whitewater took a 6-5 lead which would stand until the 9th inning when Oshkosh scored 2 runs for a 7-6 lead going into the bottom of the ninth. Naturally Whitewater's leadoff hitter would hit the first pitch over the fence for a 7-7 tie, followed by a game-winning two-run home run two batters later. As a result, Whitewater won 9-7, scoring all 9 runs on 8 home runs.

Interestingly, in one write-up for the game, this is what they said about the Oshkosh pitcher, Ryan Demmin, who gave up the five consecutive home runs:

The Oshkosh North alum pitched an otherwise impressive game with 13 strikeouts and allowing just one walk.

Yes, very impressive. Except for those five consecutive home runs, of course.

Very cool, I hope he gets his chance to play ball: but more importantly gets that solid engineering degree!!!

Holy Cow!  That poor pitcher!  He had to feel terrible giving those dingers up.  I go to a lot of Clemson Baseball games and I think I've seen two games with three back to back homers but this was just "sick."

 

If your young man with you was a ball fan he must have been really amazed.  At 14 my son had to make a decision between music or baseball: he couldn't miss any practices at H.S.(he was starting 3rd baseman) but he played in Church Praise Team and they practice on Wed. night...had to go to that practice.  So, he chose bass and music.  He is now touring!  Oh well, it took me over a year to get over it, lol.

Great story you shared with us...5 dingers "b to b" WOW!!!!!
