Westchester's baseball team tied a state record last week when the Comets hit five consecutive home runs in the first inning of a 19-1 victory over Venice.

Paul Mitchell, Brian Barton, Brandon Watson, Adan Hernandez and Jerry Alexander homered for the Comets, who tied the record set by Fallbrook in 1987.

The national record for homers in an inning is 11, set by Choctaw (Okla.) vs. Oklahoma City McGuinness in 1977.

Choctaw also holds the national record for consecutive homers in an inning with seven. Rochester (Mich.) hit five in a 1988 game; Northwest Classen (Okla.) did it in 1965.
