Clark’s 4 Home Runs in a Row Tie PCL Mark

From Staff and Wire Reports

Jerald Clark of the Las Vegas Stars tied a Pacific Coast League record Saturday night with home runs in four consecutive at-bats, hitting three of them to lead the Stars to an 8-6 victory over the Edmonton Trappers.

Clark hit a home run in the eighth inning Friday night to give the Stars a 3-2 victory over Edmonton, then hit solo homers in his first three at-bats Saturday night.

The right-handed hitting outfielder singled home a run in his fourth and final at-bat in the seventh inning. He was in the on-deck circle when catcher Benito Santiago of the San Diego Padres, on an injury rehabilitation stint with the Stars, grounded into a double play to end the eighth inning.

The only other player in PCL history to hit home runs in four consecutive at-bats was Gus Zernial of the Hollywood Stars, who homered in his last two at-bats on May 18, 1948, and in his first two the next day.


Pete Schneider of Vernon set the PCL record of five home runs in one game May 11, 1923.
