Reds' Scooter Gennett homers 4 times, drives in 10 runs

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

The Reds were founded in 1882 and, during that time, no player in franchise history had ever hit four home runs in a single game.

They can all scooter on down the list. Gennett had entered the game hitting.270 with a.308 on-base percentage and.450 slugging percentage, and left it with a slash line of.302/336./.578.

The St. Louis Cardinals will be looking to turn their fortunes around after dropping 5 straight games, including a 13-1 shellacking in game two on Tuesday.

He was mired in an 0-for-19 slump before hitting a double on Monday.

Mike Minor (2-1), the fourth Kansas City pitcher, worked a ideal ninth. Adleman (4-2) improved to 2-0 with 1.71 earned-run average over his last three starts.

Overpowering closer Craig Kimbrel struck out big-hitting rookie Aaron Judge on a 99 miles per hour fastball to finish it. He also tied the club record for most RBIs in one game with 10 during the Reds 13-1 win over the St. Louis Cardinals.

In the sixth, a solo homer. Below I pulled the two pitches which accounted for seven runs total against Wainwright, I believe they say all that needs to be said (blue dots). Just six days prior to Hamilton's career night, Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim pitcher Jered Weaver pitched his one and only career no-hitter against the Minnesota Twins.

DENVER - Rookie Antonio Senzatela took over the National League lead in victories, and Mark Reynolds vaulted into the major league RBI lead as Colorado defeated Cleveland. Gennett simply had a hitting performance unlike the game has ever seen. He drove in a career-high-tying five runs, giving him 51 RBIs. Carlos Gonzalez hit a two-run homer in the third for Colorado. Batting fifth, he had an RBI single in the bottom of the first inning. He was the star of the show, as the Reds held St. Louis to just one run on the night.

In some seasons he has played he barely had 4 home runs all season. Thus, even though the Houston Astros, who have baseball's best record (42-17), had an 11-game win streak snapped last night by the Kansas City Royals, the unlikely feat of Gennett, who only two months ago was cut by the Milwaukee Brewers, is far more enthralling. The combination of Austin Bibens-Dirkx and Alex Claudio combined to give up a run over 4 2/3 innings with Bibens-Dirkx (1-0) picking up his first major league victory.

Nomar Mazara had four hits and also homered for the Rangers. They've dropped eight of their last 10 overall. He struck out four and walked one. 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. In Cincinnati's 13-1 onslaught of the Cardinals, he was flawless. Gennett came into the game with three homers on the season. The guys who were here were going to play. With one out in the inning and runners on first and third, Eugenio Suarez hit a sacrifice fly to right field. Mike Clevinger (2-3) allowed five runs in four innings for Cleveland.

Nola (3-3) earned his first win since April 20 and became the Phillies' first starter to pitch past the seventh inning this season.

Sweetspot's Dave Schoenfield explored that question from a variety of angles, most all of which conclude it's at least one of the top two most productive outings from a player to date. He allowed three runs on eight hits.
