On this day in 1996, the White Sox hit four home runs in one inning for the first time.
While at Comiskey Park against the Milwaukee Brewers in the eighth inning, Darren Lewis was at first base when Frank Thomas connected on a ball to deep left field for his fifteenth home run. Harold Baines followed with his eleventh home run, also to left. Robin Ventura then jacked a homer to right field for his ninth. Lyle Mouton singled to center field, knocking Milwaukee pitcher Mike Potts out of the game. Former White Sox pitcher Ramon Garcia replaced Potts and his first pitch to Chad Kreuter goes to right field for a home run. It was Chad's first home run in a Sox uniform and a brand new team record.
