Not many baseball players ever pull off this particular kind of double play, and now two Tigers have done it in one inning.  In the 5th inning of the LSU-Tulane game at the Box, with LSU leading 3-2, Ryan Schimpf came up with 1 out and no one on.  He hit a solo home run to right field against Tulane starter Aaron Loup.  Blake Dean followed it up with a solo home run of his own, chasing Loup.  With 2 outs in the inning, Schimpf came up again against the third Greenie pitcher of the inning with Mikie Mahtook on second base.  Schimpf homered to right field again, giving him a rare 2-home-run-inning.  To make matters worse for the Greenies, Blake Dean followed it up with yet another home run to make the score 13-2 in favor of the Tigers.

Two LSU hitters hitting two home runs in the same inning?  Has this ever happened?
