    only player in Major League history to have a grand slam in both games of a doubleheader
    Ventura is definitely a qualifier.

    Looks like Tatis had another HR in the game following his two slam performance, but his totals were only 3 for 8 with 3 HR and 9 RBI so I'll add him for now, but he may get knocked off the list with only 3 hits in the two games.

    Damn, that is impressive. Especially the guys who only gave up 1 or 2 runs in 18 innings.

    I know, I never would have guessed there were that many

    Back in 1999 I remember Jose Jimenez facing off against Randy Johnson, Jimenez threw a no hitter then turned right around and if I'm correct threw a two hitter against Randy Johnson in a 1-0 shutout in his very next start. I was in attendance for the two hitter. Any Cardinal fans remember that?

    Walt Dropo - July 14-15, 1952: 14th - 5-5, 15th Doubleheader - Gm 1 - 4-4, Gm 2 - 4-5 (hits in first 3 at bats for 12 consecutive plate appearances w/ hits). Impressive 2 days, but going by the rules, even a decent back-to-back.

    So Carl Mays from the list won both games and gave up 1 run
    Game #1 : 9 IP, 9 Hits, 0 Walks, 2 Ks, 0 ER
    Game #2 : 9 IP, 4 hits, 2 Walks, 3 Ks, 1 ER

    Makes me think that the Philadelphia A's just sucked and Mays had a rubber arm. I imagine not a lot of deep counts but it still had to be over 200 pitches on the day.

    Baseball reference doesn't have box scores until 1916 so I can't get any details.

    Walt Dropo: Amazing two days.

    I slotted him at #5 for now but couldn't go higher because of the lack of HR.

    IMHO #1 can't be anything other than this.

    That might be the most unbeatable achievement in sports history.

    The criteria is back to back days so he wouldn't qualify for this list, but no doubt he'd be at the top for a list of the greatest back to back starts.

    Good one, put him in at #4 on the list.

    This man had two incredible starts back to back this past season.

    I'm too lazy to look up all the stats, but it was amazing.
