Cubs Trivia:

The Cubs have hit four home runs in an inning three times. Can you tell us the years?

This is clearly a question for Spriggs.

I'll make a guess.
1. 1930 because it was a year of very high offense.
2. 1959, which I believe is the year the Cubs had 5 players with 20 or more HRs (rare at the time).
3. 1998 because it was another high-offense year and Sosa hit HRs in a lot of innings.

Dangit, I looked at this one yesterday and I can only remember one year, which Occ does not have.

I will throw 2008 out there. That was one awesome year for the Cubbies. That's the only guess I'm takin'.

In 2011 they hit 6 in a game against the Pirates, they probably didn't get them in one inning, but it's the most impressive homerun display I've seen the Cubs put on.

1930 and 2008 are correct.

Since no one seems to be able to get the third year, I'll give it to you: 2000
