Scooter powers up to hit 4 home runs

Vera Richards | 08 June, 2017, 02:04

Ryan Joseph Gennett - born in Cincinnati, nicknamed Scooter since the age of five - entered the halls of baseball history by becoming only the 17th player to hit four home runs in a game.

Last night in Cincinnati, on a calm and call evening of baseball, Scooter Gennett of the Cincinnati Reds went out and made baseball history. It's generally sluggers, for obvious reasons, but not always. Though his playing time has been spotty this season, it's safe to assume that manager Bryan Price will find a way to get Gennett's bat into the lineup much more frequently moving forward. In 2016 he hit a career-high 14 home runs.

Carlos Gonzalez also hit a home run for the Rockies, who can sweep the two-game interleague set on Wednesday. "It's not how big or strong you are, it's how efficient and sometimes lucky you are". A scrappy second baseman who was claimed off waivers from Milwaukee in late March, he began the night with 38 career home runs in five seasons, including three this year. Yes, four. He's the 17th player in Major League Baseball history to do so, and if you somehow managed to sit through each of the four homers as the Cardinals coughed their way to a 13-1 loss, I commend your resilience.

St. Louis Cardinals starting pitcher Adam Wainwright reacts in the dugout during the fourth inning of a baseball game against the Cincinnati Reds, Tuesday, June 6, 2017, in Cincinnati. His previous outfield experience had consisted of one inning in 2014.

MILWAUKEE - Chase Anderson pitched 7 2-3 shutout innings, drove in a run and won his third straight game, Hernán Pérez homered and the Milwaukee Brewers beat the San Francisco Giants 5-2 on Tuesday night. He said he tried to get the number changed, but found out that the process was hard. As it happened, No. 4 turned out to be the right number.

Gennett's grand slam came in the third inning off Cardinals starter Adam Wainwright.

"I think we're all exhausted of making excuses", said Cardinals manager Mike Matheny. Piscotty's attempt to make the catch on the ball - which I have a strong inclination he knew was foul - brought up a conundrum I've often considered the aggregate results of from time to time.

"I was kind of laughing, to be honest with you", Gennett told reporters after the game. She took her son in to scare him into wearing it, and left with a surprising twist.

In the third inning, he fouled off a 3-2 curveball and then crushed a fastball 424 feet to right-center for a grand slam. Scooter Gennett did. There are other performances that were just as memorable. "But unfortunately, that was my only option, what I was told". Jedd Gyorko went 2 for 4 while Jhonny Peralta added a pinch-hit single as the Cards mustered up just 5 hits in the losing effort. Of that group, he might be its most unlikely member. I had him three years ago with Johnson City in the playoffs.
