List of 4 homer games

Hamilton's homers: Who else has hit 4 in a game?

Though unlikely, if you were otherwise occupied last night you might have missed that Texas Rangers outfielder Josh Hamilton mashed four home runs in a 10-3 win over Baltimore. He became the 16th player ever to hit four homers in a game -- and I'll bet you wouldn't have guessed that has the fourth-fewest career home runs of any of the four-homer-game players. Five of the players are Hall-of-Famers and Hamilton is the only active player to have done it.

Here is a list of all of the four-homer games:
