July 8, 1970, Jim Ray Hart Completes The Cycle With a Six RBI Inning
Five more men joined the six ribbies in an inning club, before the record was broken by Fernando Tatis of the St. Louis Cardinals in 1999. Tatis blasted a record setting two grand slams during the third inning of a contest against the Dodgers in Los Angeles. Hart played in 1,125 games over 12 years on a big league diamond. He wore a Giants uniform in 1,001 of those games, before finishing his career as a New York Yankee. He was a career .278 hitter with 170 homers, and 578 RBIs. Six of those RBIs were memorable to say the least.
