43

Scooter Gennett, who the Brewers DFA'd just before the end of spring training, is having himself a pretty nice season for his hometown Reds as a utility player. Today, he put his name in the history books by becoming just the 17th MLB player all-time to hit four home runs in a single game. Facing off against the Cardinals, Gennett went 5-5 with 4 homers and 10 runs batted in. He now owns a .302/.336/.578 batting line with 7 home runs in 122 plate appearances this season while appearing at 2B, 3B, LF, and RF. (Statistics courtesy of Fangraphs)
