Can't Predict Baseball: Inside The Park Home Runs

On this day in 1997 for the first time in over twenty years two inside the park home runs are hit in the same inning between the Cubs and the Pirates. Sammy Sosa hits one for the Cubs and Tony Womack hits one for the Pirates for the home runs that are only five minutes apart in the sixth inning. The Cubs would beat the Pirates 2-1 at Three Rivers Stadium.

The last time this happened was when a pair of Texas Rangers teammates Bump Wills and Toby Harrah hit back to back inside the park home runs on consecutive pitches at Yankee Stadium in 1977.
