Scooter turns slugger, ties MLB record with 4 homers

MLB roundup for June 7

A scrappy second baseman, Gennett began the night with 38 career home runs, including three this season.

"It's awesome, especially since he's not an everyday player for us", Price said. He allowed just two hits to the Cubs over 5 1/3 innings in his last start on June 2 but earned a no-decision in a 3-2 loss. He followed up Tuesday by accomplishing something previously done by, well, nobody in Cincinnati Reds franchise history - not Johnny Bench or Tony Perez or Ted Kluszewski or Frank Robinson or Eric Davis or Adam Dunn or Ken Griffey Jr. Sabathia has won four straight starts for the first time since 2012.

It wasn't but a day earlier that four hits, much less four homers, sounded far-fetched.

"Just the whole game I was trying to relax", Gennett told MLB Network after the game.

Anyway, Gennett's game scores 31 points - just one behind the all-time mark, although remarkably, only tied for the best score of 2017.

Gennett snapped an 0-for-19 slump during the Reds' 4-2 win over the Cardinals on Monday.

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

St. Louis is 0-6 in their last 6 road games and 0-4 in Lynn's last 4 starts while the under is 5-2 in their last 7 games overall.

"It's surreal, man. It really is", Gennett said, wearing a backup set of clothes after the others were whisked away. "It's very emotional. You've seen history".

Scooter Gennett #4 of the Cincinnati Reds singles to right field to drive in a run against the San Francisco Giants in the first inning of a game at Great American Ball Park on May 7, 2017 in Cincinnati, Ohio. Now that he has hit a career high of four home runs in a game, his stats improved tremendously. He stopped at third base but was waved home as if the ball had hit one of the catwalks above the field despite replays seeming to show it didn't hit anything. It was the first grand slam given up by Wainwright since 2012. Rendon's game was awesome, but I'd say Gennett's fourth home run trumps Rendon's. The Tigers loaded the bases with two outs in the ninth, but Bud Norris struck out Alex Avila for his 11th save. He then hit a two-run blast and solo shot in the fourth and sixth innings off of reliever John Gant.

Reds: RF Scott Schebler was out of the lineup for the third straight game with a sore left shoulder, but came in on defense after the Reds built their big lead.
