Arizona Diamondbacks hitters put Milwaukee Brewers right-hander Dave Bush in the record book Wednesday by hitting home runs in four consecutive at-bats against him.
Adam LaRoche, Miguel Montero, Mark Reynolds and Stephen Drew connected against Bush in the top of the fourth inning at Miller Park.
Arizona went on the win the game, 8-2.
"It’s pretty special," Drew told reporters afterward. "You don’t see that too often. It’s one of those things that was meant to be and it was a special time."
Bush became the third pitcher to give up four in a row, joining the Angels’ Paul Foytack (July 31, 1963, vs. the Indians) and the Yankees’ Chase Wright (April 22, 2007, vs. the Red Sox). Wright is now pitching for the Brewers’ Triple-A affiliate.
"I’m going to assume I lost a little location," Bush said. "There wasn’t anything that changed other than that little bit of a rut there. It was frustrating for sure."
Arizona is the seventh team in major league history to hit four straight homers.
"I don’t know what to tell you about that," Diamondbacks manager Kirk Gibson said. "It was a freak thing. I was happy to be part of it."
