1987: The Toronto Blue Jays set a record for the most home runs in a single game, hitting 10 of them, in a win over the Baltimore Orioles at Toronto's Exhibition Stadium. Catcher Ernie Whitt hit three of them, left fielder George Bell and third baseman Rance Mulliniks added another two each, and outfielders Lloyd Moseby and Rob Ducey and designated hitter Fred McGriff hit one each.
