On May 9, 1987 — Eddie Murray becomes the first major leaguer to hit home runs from both sides of the plate in consecutive games when he connects off left-handed Bob James in the sixth inning of the Orioles’ 9-6 victory over Chicago at Comiskey Park. In yesterday’s contest, the Baltimore first baseman also homered off southpaw Ray Searage and righty Jose DeLeon.
