The St. Louis Cardinals hit four home runs in a row off Philadelphia Phillies starter Kyle Gibson.

It is not every day you see a big-league team hit four home runs in a row off the same pitcher.

The St. Louis Cardinals were able to put five runs across in the first inning off Philadelphia Phillies starting pitching Kyle Gibson.

While Citizens Bank Park tends to favor the hitters, odds are, Gibson has never had a day like this at the office before. Shockingly, he lasted longer than his St. Louis counterpart Matthew Liberatore did in the game. He went four innings, as opposed to 2.2.

Here is the two-run shot off Nolan Arenado’s bat to get this home run party started.

As you can see, the Cardinals had way too much fun with this on social media, as they should.

Say that four times fast ????

Unfortunately, the Phillies tied it up at five runs apiece before the end of the third inning…

St. Louis Cardinals hit four home runs in a row vs. the Philadelphia Phillies

This is only the 11th time in MLB history a team has hit four consecutive home runs. The Cardinals have never done this before in their proud history as a professional baseball franchise either.

Unbelievable!

The Cardinals are in a tight division race with the Milwaukee Brewers in the NL Central. With the three other division rivals all rebuilding, either Milwaukee repeats or St. Louis will find a way to take the division crown for itself. As far as the Phillies are concerned, they have played fantastic baseball of late, but find themselves in third place in the NL East behind New York and Atlanta.

Ultimately, you rarely see something occur on the baseball diamond that is usually reserved for a video game console. Do not lie to yourself. We all tried to see how many home runs we could hit in a row to start a game off on the right foot. Four home runs in a row in a video game is pretty impressive, but to do this in a real-life sporting event for all the world to see is just mind-blowing.

Congratulations to the Cardinals for being the 11th team to ever pull this accomplishment off!
