D-backs Minor Leaguer hits five home runs ... in five consecutive at-bats

It's very difficult to hit a home run each time you step up to the plate. The Major League record is four in a row, set most recently by Carlos Gonzalez in 2012 and Carlos Delgado in 2003. There's also the epic tale of Sylvester Coddmeyer III, but we won't get into that.

And now, thanks to Jon Griffin, a new Southern League record has been established. During two games on Wednesday and Thursday, the D-backs prospect hit five home runs in five consecutive plate appearances while playing for the Double-A Mobile BayBears. He hit four in the first game and his final blast in Game 2. If you don't believe us, check out the video below:

Griffin now has 10 homers and 28 RBIs through his first 41 games, and he's had one helluva week.
