On April 6, 2006 — Pedro Feliz honors three former major leaguers (including his own manager, Felipe Alou) when he drives in Barry Bonds, Moises Alou and Lance Niekro with a bases-clearing double off Jorge Sosa during the Giants’ six-run 3rd against the Braves. Feliz is the first major-leaguer in the last 49 years to drive in three sons of ex-major-leaguers on the same play. Further research reveals that it is only the 11th time since 1957 that three sons of big leaguers were on base at the same time. Doing some record-setting of their own in the 6 – 4 loss, Brave battery-mates Brian McCann (C) and Sosa (P) become only the 11th such duo to hit back-to-back homers in the majors when they go yard consecutively. It is the first major league hit and homer for Sosa, who will have two more hits, both homers, this year.
