Cincinnati Reds second baseman Scooter Gennett just became the 17th player in Major League Baseball history to hit four home runs in one game and the first to do it since 2012.
The 27-year-old had just 38 career home runs entering Tuesday night’s contest, then blasted four homers becoming the first member of the Reds to do so.
He finished the evening 5-for-5 and drove in 10 runs in the process.
He opened things with a grand slam in the bottom of the third:
Followed that with a two-run shot in the fourth inning:
Then he launched a solo shot to the opposite field in the sixth:
And rounded out his amazing night with another two-run homer in the bottom of the eighth:
What a night.
