On August 21, 1990 — Billy Hatcher ties a major-league record with four doubles to pace the Reds to an 8 – 1 win over the Cubs. Rick Mahler beats Mike Harkey. The only score for Chicago is Ryne Sandberg’s 29th homer. Reds manager Lou Piniella argues with umpire Dutch Rennert after Barry Larkin is called out at first at the end of the fifth inning. After throwing his hat down, Piniella is ejected; in response, Piniella rips first base out of the ground and throws it twice toward right field.
