7/21 Ramirez HR/RBI numbers
Aramis Ramirez hit three homers and drove in seven runs on Tuesday, his fourth three-homer game to tie Albert Pujols for the most among active players and tie Ernie Banks for the second-most in Cubs history. Sammy Sosa has the most three-homer games with six, which ties him with Johnny Mize for the Major League record.
Ramirez also has nine homers and 24 RBIs in his last 12 games. According to Elias Sports Bureau, only two other Cubs batters have had at least nine homers and 24 RBIs over a dozen games: Hack Wilson (1928) and Sosa (in both 1998 and 2002).
