Former Brewer Scooter Gennett hits 4 homers, makes Major League Baseball history - for Reds

Reds' Scooter Gennett homers 3 times, drives in 8 runs

Scooter Gennett Just Slugged Four Homers In One Game For The Reds

On Tuesday, everybody noticed as he accomplished a feat rarer than a flawless game, rarer than a four-strikeout inning, and just as rare as an unassisted triple play: In a 13-1 win over St. Louis, Gennett hit four home runs, becoming just the 15th player since the start of the 20th century - and 17th ever - to do so.

Gennett, a 27-year-old Cincinnati native, stuck around after the game to meet the 12-year-old fan who caught his fourth homer.

Gennett had two of his four home runs on pitches in the upper third of the strike zone and hit another pitch there for a first-inning single.

Scooter Gennett has tied a major league record by homering four times for the Cincinnati Reds against the St. Louis Cardinals on Tuesday night.

Josh Hamilton was the previous player to hit four home runs in one game, for Texas against Baltimore in May 2012. Even Gennett said after the game that he was surprised, "but that's baseball, I guess". Bronson Arroyo will get the start in game three and is 3-4 with a 6.24 ERA and 36 strikeouts this season. The last National League player to hit four home runs in one game was Shawn Green for the Los Angeles Dodgers against Milwaukee in May 2002. He was claimed off waivers for the Brewers prior to the start of the season and given Brandon Phillips' No. 4 (Phillips remarked recently that he was insulted the Reds gave the number away).

Gennett ended an 0-for-19 slump during the Reds' 4-2 win over the Cardinals on Monday.

Anyway, Gennett's game scores 31 points - just one behind the all-time mark, although remarkably, only tied for the best score of 2017. He allowed two runs in six innings of a 3-2 victory over Atlanta on Friday.

The Manchester United star netted for the first time since his father passed away in the 2-0 win over the Eagles. That's what I am going to have in my mind.

The right-handed hitting member of the St. Louis Cardinals, who was originally drafted by the Toronto Blue Jays in 1986, wasn't known for being a slugger, but had the game of his life against the Reds.

In other Reds news, the Reds signed Cuban IF prospect Jose Israel Garcia earlier today, splashing big time cash again before their window to do so closes for two years.

Cincinnati's Scooter Gennett is lifted up by Eugenio Suarez as he celebrates his four-homer game. Only Whiten had more RBIs in a four-homer game, but he also made an out.

Here are all four home runs, with the fourth coming in the bottom of the eighth inning of the Reds' 13-1 win.

He began the night with a third-inning grand slam off Cardinals starter Adam Wainwright.

Before the outburst, Gennett had 39 career homers in 1,755 plate appearances over five seasons, with a career high of 14 past year.
