Scooter turns slugger, ties MLB record with 4 homers

Cincinnati Reds’ Scooter Gennett hits a two-run home run and his fourth overall in the eighth inning of a baseball game against the St. Louis Cardinals

The 27 year-old Cincinnati native added a grand slam in the fourth inning, a two-run blast in the fourth, a solo bomb in the sixth, and a second two-run shot in the eighth.

"It's surreal, man, it really is", said Gennett, who went 5-for-5 and tied a franchise record with 10 RBIs.

At 5-foot-5 and just 185 pounds, Gennett was claimed from Milwaukee off waivers late during spring training to be used as a utility infielder. Evidenced by the first massive mistake pitch, a flat, 3-2 sinker left right over the heart of the plate for Gennett to deposit into the right field bleachers (on left in picture below). Now that he has hit a career high of four home runs in a game, his stats improved tremendously.

He's now in a 6-for-6 streak with 12 RBIs.

The beneficiary of the Gennett eruption was right-hander Tim Adleman, who extended his recent surge by allowing three hits and one run with two walks while tying his career high with seven strikeouts in seven innings. The last time that happened was in 2012!

Gennett's grand slam in his next at-bat was the first Wainwright had allowed since 2012.

Eugenio Suarez's bases-loaded triple in the fourth ended Wainwright's outing. Gennett when he woke up on Tuesday was batting.270/.308/.450 on the season.

The list of players to hit four homers in a game includes such legends as Lou Gehrig and Willie Mays. St Louis Cardinals outfield Mark Whiten, in 1993, went 4-5 with four home runs and twelve RBI. They've taken nine of their last 14 against St. Louis. He advanced on a groundout and scored on Gennett's single that got the Reds rolling. Cingrani had been sidelined since April 21 with a strained right oblique. Only five other players in the four-homer club ever had at least 17 total bases.

The sentences stem from the scandal, for which Sandusky is now serving a 30-to -60-year prison sentence. He was sacked in 2011, after 45 years, and died a few months later.

Brewers 5, Giants 2: Chase Anderson pitched 72/3 shutout innings, drove in a run and won his third straight game for Milwaukee.

Gennett was actually born in Cincinnati, although he moved to Florida when he was 9 years old.

PITCHING FOR THE REDS: Bronson Arroyo (3-4, 6.24 ERA).

Phillies 3, Braves 1: Aaron Nola allowed a run over eight innings, Odubel Herrera doubled in the go-ahead run in the sixth and Philadelphia survived a ninth-inning scare to beat Atlanta.

BULLPEN INTRIGUE: Newcomer John Gant finally came in handy, working 3 1/3 innings Tuesday after Adam Wainwright blew up.

Mike Moustakas hit a two-run homer with two outs in the ninth inning after Kansas City rallied from a six-run deficit to end Houston's 11-game winning streak.

On Tuesday night, he did something no Reds player had ever done, something only 16 players accomplished previously in major league baseball history. Scherzer (7-3), the 2016 National League Cy Young victor, gave up an unearned run in the first inning and allowed three hits with two walks in seven innings.

The Reds beat the St. Louis Cardinals 13-1 Tuesday night.
