Six Hits in a Game

Major League Players With 6 Hits in a Game

Any hitter would be happy with a game where they went three for four, or even three for five, but no player regularly comes into a game expecting to collect three or four hits. Just think of the pride one has when he ends up with six hits in one nine-inning game.

As if the hits were not sensational enough, some players like to add another feat to their already fabulous day:

John Reilly (1883), Dave Orr (1885), Larry Twitchell (1889), Farmer Weaver (1890), Sam Thompson (1894), Bobby Veach (1920), Rondell White (1995), Ian Kinsler (2009), and Christian Yelich (2018) each hit for the cycle while they collected six hits.

Shawn Green had four of his six hits leave the park, the only 6-for-6 hitter who also joined the four home runs in a game club.

Wilbert Robinson and Rennie Stennett didn’t settle for six hits, they went seven for seven - in a regulation (9-inning) game.

Cal McVey liked getting six hits in a game so much, he did it again, just three days later.

All of the players listed below defied the odds, bolstered their averages, and generally ruined a pitcher's day by going the distance, and hitting safely six times in a game, nothing short of amazing.

"When I connected seven-for-seven, few realized in the colorful Wrigley Field, that I used the bat of Manny Sanguillen and that it was a little heavier." - Rennie Stennett (7 for 7 on September 16, 1975 )

Six Hits in a Game | Hits Records | Research by Baseball Almanac, Inc.



Extra inning six-hit games are listed above, a feature we added in 2018, but see the Hits Record Book for details. There have been an additional 20 instances in the American League and 26 instances in the National League. An amazing day at the plate, but not quite as amazing as doing it in a regulation game.

Two players from the defunct Players League had six-hit games: Ed Delahanty with Cleveland on June 2, 1890 (four singles, one double & one triple) & Billy Shindle with Philadelphia on August 26, 1890 (three singles, two doubles & one triple). Other defunct league six-hit games include those in the chart below:
