Not one, not two...
That sentence may have been running through Mike Yastrzemski's mind as he rounded the bases for the third time Friday night at Chase Field.
His first came in the top of the third inning, and broke a 1-1 tie.
His second gave the Giants a 6-2 lead, and made Friday his first multi-home run game of his career. You can't get much better than that right? Wrong.

Mike's grandfather, MLB Hall of Famer Carl Yastrzemski, was only hit three home runs in a game once. Except Carl did it once in 3,308 games, and Mike got three in just his 70th career game.
Mike Yastrzemski with three homers and four RBI tonight.
Grandfather Carl hit three homers in a game once in his career. May 19, 1976. He also had four RBI in that game.https://t.co/7WHOIAw9m2#SFGiants
