The Red Sox have hit at least two homers in each of the last eight games, a new franchise record.
The 1998 and 2001 teams each had streaks of seven games. This year's team also recently had a six-game stretch (July 31 to August 6). In the 21 games since July 31, they have hit 42 home runs -- and hit at least two in 17 of those 21 games. Here is the list.
Longest streaks of 3+ HR games: 4, July 2-5, 2003
Longest streaks of 4+ HR games: 3, June 17-19, 1977
Longest streaks of 5+ HR games: 3, June 17-19, 1977
(redsock childhood note: The longest two-HR streak by the 1977 club was five (June 14-19, which included hitting 16 (!) in a three-game sweep of the Yankees at Fenway Park). June 18, the middle game of that MFY series, was when Billy Martin pulled Reggie Jackson from RF in the sixth inning after he (Reggie) loafed towards a Jim Rice hit that Rice stretched into a double. Martin and Jackson nearly had a fist fight in the dugout on national television.)
