Cincinnati Reds utility man Scooter Gennett isn’t a household name in baseball, but his name won’t soon be forgotten after he bashed four home runs Tuesday night.
Gennett is the first player since Josh Hamilton in 2012 to hit four homers in a single game. He’s also the 17th player in Major League Baseball history to accomplish the feat and the first to collect five hits, four runs and 10 RBI in one game.
He joined an impressive list of Reds legends with his RBI total, too.
Gennett finished 5-for-5 with four runs and 10 (!) RBI. He entered Tuesday night with just three home runs on the season.
His offensive explosion helped the Reds beat the St. Louis Cardinals 13-1 at the Great American Ballpark.
