List of Major League Baseball single-game hits leaders

From Infogalactic: the planetary knowledge core
Jump to: navigation, search

This is a list of Major League Baseball players with at least six hits in one game. Among the most phenomenal accomplishments of the six-hit performances are the following: Larry Twitchell, Sam Thompson and Ian Kinsler each hit for the cycle. Shawn Green's six hit game set the Major League record for total bases (19) and tied the single-game Major League records for home runs (4) and runs scored (6), and extra-base hits (5).[1][2] Twitchell's six hit game also featured five extra-base hits. Guy Hecker had six hits in a game for which he was a pitcher, a unique feat in professional baseball history.[2] Hecker also scored seven runs in his six-hit game, setting a professional baseball mark that still stands.[2] Wilbert Robinson and Rennie Stennett each recorded seven hits in a nine-inning game. Cal McVey had two 6-hit games three days apart.[3] Johnny Burnett holds the record with nine hits in a game (18 innings, 11 at-bats).[4] The record for hits in a postseason game is five.[2] Far more of the six-hit games have been nine-inning affairs than have been extra inning games. However, three of the five seven-hit games have been extra inning games. Only 2 of the nine-inning six-hit games involved 8 at bats, but a dozen extra inning six-hit games have entailed at least 8 at bats.
