On May 9, 1987, Eddie Murray of the Baltimore Orioles becomes the first player in major league history to switch-hit home runs in two consecutive games. Murray’s latest two-homer game helps the Orioles club the Chicago White Sox, 15-6. The previous game, Murray homered twice in a 7-6 win over the White Sox. Yesterday, Murray took righty Jose DeLeon and lefty Ray Searage deep; today it is Joel McKeon (LHP) and Bob James (RHP).
