Bob Lowe (Wikipedia)

Boston Beaneaters’ second baseman Bob Lowe became the first Major League ballplayer to hit four home runs in one game.  On 30 May 1894, Lowe went 0-for-6 in the first game of  a doubleheader against Cincinnati, only to follow it up with his four round-trippers in the second game, two of which were hit in the third inning.  Boston defeated the Reds 20-11 in that game.
