A Slugfest To Remember

June 04, 1995

The 12-homer slugfest between the White Sox and Tigers creased some record-book bindings last Sunday. Twelve homers in one game is a major-league record. The 10 solo homers in one game is a record. The seven homers by the Tigers was a club record. Detroit had three players hit two homers apiece, which tied a major-league record. The 21 extra-base hits by both teams is a record. The 76 total bases for two teams was one short of the major-league record. However, the Detroit Tigers lost, 14-12, and had little interest in being part of big-league history. "It stunk," said Detroit manager Sparky Anderson. "It was awful . . . Ridiculous." Look at it this way, Sparky: This could be the only chance for the '95 Tigers to be remembered.
