Which hitters have the most multi-homer games?

Yoenis Cespedes smacked a pair of homers for the A’s last night, which got me thinking about which hitters have the most multi-homer games. My initial reaction was that Cespedes does it a lot and sure enough he’s gone deep multiple times in five games since debuting in 2012.

That’s a lot, but it’s actually not close to the most during that same 2012-2014 time period:

Edwin Encarnacion     10
Alfonso Soriano        9
Giancarlo Stanton      8
Miguel Cabrera         8
Ryan Braun             8

I like that the multi-homer game leaderboard includes four names you’d expect in Edwin Encarnacion, Giancarlo Stanton, Miguel Cabrera, and Ryan Braun … and then Alfonso Soriano, who was released by the Yankees last week and might be retiring.

Also of note: Cespedes’ five multi-homer games since 2012 ranks tied for 22nd and a total of 30 hitters have at least five multi-homer games during that time.

    It has seemed like all of Soriano’s damage comes in bunches. He is hot for 3-4 weeks and the rest of his season is miserable, and it all averages out to mediocre with power.

    Assuming this is accurate, that would indeed mean that Edwin also leads the league in multi-parrot walks. At least it’s good to know he keeps his parrot in tip-top shape.

    Just imagine if MVP Miggy was healthy!
