Arizona goes back-to-back-to-back-to-back

At what point, if you're Dave Bush, do you just go ahead and hit someone?
Instead, the Diamondbacks became the seventh team in history to hit four consecutive home runs. With one out in the fourth inning, Adam LaRoche, Miguel Montero, Mark Reynolds and Stephen Drew homered off of Bush.
Bush then gave up a single to Gerardo Perra after Drew's homer, but got out of the inning without further damage. And in another odd note, the fourth was the first inning for Bush without a leadoff hit by the Diamondbacks.
Interestingly enough, Bush was the second Brewer pitcher to allow four homers in an inning, as Mike Caldwell allowed four to Boston in the fourth inning on May 31, 1980.
