Until Thursday, there had been the same number of pitchers in major-league history with perfect games as hitters with home runs in four consecutive plate appearances. Colorado Rockies outfielder Carlos Gonzalez changed that. His home run off Houston's Bud Norris in the first inning at Coors Field — a three-run shot to left field — was his fourth home run in four straight plate appearances, dating back to his three-home run effort on Wednesday. It was the 22nd time that feat has been reached in major-league history.
