Four in a row

Last night, Kevin Mench hit a solo home run off of Oakland's Joe Blanton in a 3-2 loss to the Athletics. This was the fourth consecutive game that Mench has homered, tying the mark set by Dave May from August 4 through August 8, 1971 (May did not play on August 6th). The A's were also victims during this run. May hit his first, a three run-homer off of Joe Dobson, on the 4th. Solo shots then came off A's' Hall of Famer Catfish Hunter on the 5th, and the Royals' ken Wright and Dick Drago on the 7th and 8th, respectively.

Mench prefaced his Oakland homer with a trio off of Tampa Bay Devil Ray pitchers. Mench's streak started with his grand slam off of Seth McClung then followed it with a three-run homer off of Edwin Jackson and a two-run surrendered by Casey Fossum.
