All three of Mize’s home runs came off Art Houtteman, in the 1st inn, 4th, and 5th innings. His 3 run shot in the 5th gave the Yankees a short-lived 7-6 lead.
On September 15, 1950 — At Briggs Stadium, Johnny Mize hits three home runs in one game for the sixth time in his career, establishing a major league record. The first baseman’s offensive output which includes 6 RBI’s, makes him the second player to accomplish a three-homer game in both leagues along with Babe Ruth, which isn’t enough when the Yankees lose at Detroit, 9-7.
