With a fifth-inning two-run home run off of Rockies starter Brett Anderson, Diamondbacks outfielder Mark Trumbo tied a club record with homers in four consecutive games, via AZCentral’s Nick Piecoro. Per MLB.com’s Steve Gilbert, Mark Reynolds was the last D-Back to do it, in 2009, and five D-Backs have accomplished the feat since the franchise came into existence in 1998.
The Major League record for home runs in consecutive games is eight, held by Ken Griffey, Jr. (1993), Don Mattingly (1987), and Dale Long (1956).
Trumbo joined the D-Backs in a three-team trade back in December. He is now hitting .324 with five home runs and 13 RBI in his first nine games with his new team. Sunday’s blast, by the way, was also the 100th of his career.
