On April 25 1997, Ken Griffey, Jr. of the Seattle Mariners hits three home runs in a 13 – 8 victory over the Toronto Blue Jays. The three homers give Griffey a major league-leading 13 on the year, and a major-league record for the month of April. The first two dingers come off Roger Clemens and the third, hit off Mike Timlin, is the 250th of Griffey’s career. He also had a three-homer game in May of last year.
