Nate Colbert hits 5 homeruns in double header On August 1, 1972, Nate Colbert of the San Diego Padres sets a major league record by driving in 12 runs during a doubleheader sweep of the Atlanta Braves. Colbert also ties a doubleheader record by clubbing five home runs. In a remarkable coincidence, Colbert attended a game at Sportsman’s Park in 1954, when Hall of Famer Stan Musial also hit five home runs in a doubleheader.
