Scooter Gennett Hits 4 Home Runs in One Game

Yes, you read that right. Scooter Gennett became just the 17th player in MLB history to take four balls deep in one game. The Cincinnati Reds second baseman finished last nights 13-1 victory over the St. Louis Cardinals 5 for 5 with 10 RBIs.

Gennett Started the game with a single and followed it up with four consecutive home runs.

Gennett was picked up by the Reds after being waived from the Milwaukee Brewers in late March. He came into last night’s game with only 38 career home runs over five seasons. This marked the first time in Reds franchise history that a player finished the game with four home runs and the first time an MLB player has done so since 2012 when Josh Hamilton took four deep.

Gennett received not one, but two curtain calls during this game. One after his third home run and another after his last homer of the night off John Brebbia in the eighth.

Tim Adleman (4-2), who pitched seven complete innings on only one run, would go on get the win for the Reds.

This series continues tonight as the Cardinals look to bet back on track. First pitch is at 7:10 p.m. on FSMW an FSOH.
