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

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

Scooter Gennett of the Cincinnati Reds is not known for hitting the home-run ball.

"It hasn't been a joyous day [Mother's Day] for me in a while", Braden told ESPN after the game. The Orioles trailed 4-1 after six innings and 5-3 in the ninth before coming back. But he improved to.708 in 2016 and hit a go-ahead, two-run double off Cardinals lefty Kevin Siegrist on Monday night, foreshadowing his even greater heroics 24 hours later. David Freese belted his sixth homer of the season for Pittsburgh to provide an early 4-1 lead. "And he said 'Scooter Gennett.' ..." "I was watching the game, but I wasn't really instinctually seeing the lineup and all that".

New York's offense gave starter Jacob deGrom (4-3) plenty of run support early, with Juan Lagares, Asdrubal Cabrera and Neil Walker each hitting home runs as NY scored in each of the first three innings. A terrific feat for any first year hurler, however, his 20 strikeouts made it one of the greatest single game pitching performances in Major League Baseball history. Some seasons, he barely hit four homers at all — he reached double-digits only once and had 38 career heading into the game.

Gennett singled in a run his first time up against Cardinal starter Adam Wainwright before starting his home run adventure.

Gennett's grand slam was the first Wainwright had allowed since 2012.

Hall of Famer Randy Johnson got to 20 in 2001 for the Arizona Diamondbacks and Washington Nationals ace Max Scherzer did it most recently last season.

Gennett faced Gant again in the sixth, this time hitting a 3-1 pitch down the left-field line for his third homer of the game, doubling his season total, and drawing a curtain call from the 18,620 fans at Great American Ball Park. Cincinnati is 13-3 in Arroyo's last 16 home starts against a team with a losing record and 2-6 in their last 8 games following a win while the over is 7-3 in their last 10 home games. "It's very emotional. You've seen history".

Tim Adleman (4-2) gave up one run - on Stephen Piscotty's homer - in seven innings.

Anderson (5-1) extended his scoreless streak to 21 2/3 innings with the win. He allowed two runs in six innings of a 3-2 victory over Atlanta on Friday.

Arrieta (6-4) allowed two runs, struck out five and walked three in just his second win in the past month.

Before the outburst, Gennett had 39 career homers in 1,755 plate appearances over five seasons, with a career high of 14 previous year. Analysts are shooting numbers of his new stats, one claiming he hit 9.5% of his career home runs.
