Going into last night’s game, Scooter Gennett had 3 home runs and 20 RBI’s on the season. After last night’s game, he has 7 home runs and 30 RBI’s. That’s what you call a nice night at the ballpark. Gennett became only the 17th player in MLB history to hit 4 homers in a game, and only the second player to hit four homers including a grand slam. While this was certainly an impressive feat, my favorite fact about Gennett came later in the night on Twitter:
Four home runs in a game is rare, but going through life with the nickname Scooter to avoid a childhood arrest is on another level. Scooter Gennett might be my new favorite baseball player.
