The Dodgers' salvo of four consecutive home runs in the ninth inning Monday night can only be matched three times in baseball history:

The Red's Jim Maloney, with a 10-2 lead in the seventh, gave up home runs to Eddie Mathews and Hank Aaron. Marshal Bridges relieved Maloney and gave up home runs to Joe Adcock and Frank Thomas on his first two pitches. The Reds held on for a 10-8 victory.
July 31, 1963 at Cleveland Stadium
Already trailing, 4-1, in the sixth, Angels pitcher Paul Foytack gave up consecutive home runs to Woodie Held, Pedro Ramo, Tito Francona and Larry Brown, all on 0-2 counts. The Indians won, 9-1
May 2, 1964 at Municipal Stadium, Kansas City, MO
Tony Olivia led off the 11th inning against Kansas City A's pitcher Dan Pfister with his second home run of the game, and Bob Allison and Jimmie Hall followed, suit, all on the first pitch. Vern Handrahan relieved Pfister and Harmon Killebrew hit his second home run, also on the first pitch. The Twins won, 7-3
