Aquino Hits 3 Home Runs To Keep Up Impressive Start While Alvarez Does The Same

Jonathan Grant | August 11th, 2019

We’ve seen a number of impressive and ridiculous starts to careers in Major League Baseball before, but the one that Aristides Aquino has made through his first ten games is downright frightening. After Saturday, the Cincinnati Reds slugger has seven home runs in his first ten outings as a big leaguer. He got three of them against the Chicago Cubs on Saturday, doing so in the second, third, and fourth innings as he helped lead them to a 10-1 win. He’s only the 12th player to hit a homer in three straight innings now and only the second to ever hit three home runs in a single game in his first ten.

Houston Astros man Yordan Alvarez, another rookie, was able to accomplish the same thing as well on
Saturday. The rookie had half of their home runs as they clobbered the Baltimore Orioles 23-2, making it the highest-scoring game in the history of their franchise in the process. It may be harsh to call them the worst team in MLB history, but this Orioles team has to be called the most noncompetitive, don’t they?
