I can start it off...

Two homer/1 inning guys: Sammy Sosa, Jimmy Edmonds.

4 hit post season guys: Kenny Lofton.

That should leave one in each category, I believe?

I'll take a few shots at the remaining 4 hit guy:  Rogers Hornsby, Wildfire Schulte, Kiki Cuyler.

 

Shots at the 2-homer, same inning guy - this one could be impossible:  Hundley (2 for 1 guess), Ernie Banks, Henry Rodiguez, Leon "Bull" Durham.

Nope.

 We are down to just needing the third name for 2 homers in one inning.

 

Thus far we have Sosa and Edmonds.

 

It really isn't that obscure of a Cubs name.

I guess I won't guess Hartnett then.

 

For the HR I will guess Rick Monday.
