Scooter Gennett makes history

After a historical Saturday, Tuesday was host to another historical event this week. In Cincinnati during a game between the Reds and the Cardinals, Reds left fielder Scooter Gennett did something that no other Red has ever done, and that’s only happened 16 other times in MLB history. Tuesday night Gennett smacked 4 home runs in a single game. While batting 5th and playing left field, Genett went 5-5 with 4 home runs driving in 10. This offensive showing was totally out of the ordinary for Gennett who’s normally know as a small ball contact hitter. Gennett was acquired by the Reds in March of this past off season after he was designated for assignment by the Milwaukee Brewers. Gennett had been struggling ever since he went to the Reds but especially recently by going 1 for his last 20 before Tuesday really making Gennett’s performance surprising. The last time a player hit 4 home runs in a game was in 2012 when Josh Hamilton did it with the Rangers in Baltimore. This is truly an amazing feat for a talented young player and hopefully he can keep up the pace at the plate while the Reds try to rebuild.
