Most Home Runs in a Game for every MLB Team

Major League Baseball Team Records for Most Home Runs in a Game

The home run record for each Major League team during a regular season game - including every instance each American and National League team tied their own franchise record, a link to the box score, their opponent that record setting day, and details on what players helped each Major League team make history.

"The White Sox hit seven home runs during Saturday's game against the Blue Jays at U.S. Cellular Field, and made dubious history in the process. Those seven long balls, all amazingly of the solo variety, were not enough to prevent a 10-8 loss. The White Sox matched a single-game club record for home runs, set on April 23, 1955 , but also joined the Tigers ( May 28, 1995 , against the White Sox and Aug. 8, 2004 , against the Red Sox ) as the only teams in Major League history to lose a game when hitting seven home runs." - Scott Merkin (MLB.com, 06/25/2016, 'White Sox hit 7 HRs in loss, tie MLB record,' Source )
