1939 In a twin bill sweep at Shibe Park, the Yankees set the major league record for home runs in a game and in two consecutive games when the team hit eight homers in the opener and another five in the nightcap on their way in sweeping the A's, 23-2 and 10-0. In the first game of the twin bill, the Bronx Bombers collect 53 total bases to establish an American League record.
1987 In a seven-game day, American League batters combined to hit a record 28 home runs. The A's contribute five round-trippers to the new mark when Mark McGwire and Jose Canseco, known as the Bash Brothers, both go deep twice with teammate Reggie Jackson adding another in the team's 10-0 rout of Cleveland.
