  2. Both Leadoff Hitters Starting With a Hit By Pitch and Stolen Base

    https://www.baseball-reference.com/boxes/HOU/HOU198609250.shtml for a game Mike Scott pitched a no-hitter in. In the top of the first, San Francisco's Dan Gladden led off, was hit by a pitch, and stole second before the second plate appearance was finished. In the bottom of the first, Houston's Billy Hatcher did the same thing. Can anybody find another game where both leadoff hitters were hit by a pitch and stole second before the second plate appearance was finished?

Alex Rodriguez, Ryan Howard, and Ryan Braun finished first, second, and third. Does anybody know of another player who had at least three consecutive number finishes including winning? The numbers have to be consecutive, but the years do not.
