Scooter Gennett of the Reds has a night for the ages as he homers four times and drives in 10 runs in a 13 – 1 drubbing of the Cardinals

2017 – Scooter Gennett of the Reds has a night for the ages as he homers four times and drives in 10 runs in a 13 – 1 drubbing of the Cardinals. The usually light-hitting infielder goes 5-for-5 after entering the game with 3 homers on the year and having just come out of an 0-for-19 slump the day before. He starts things off innocently enough with a run-scoring single in the 1st, then hits a grand slam in the 3rd, a two-run shot in the 4th, a solo homer in the 6th and another two-run homer in the 8th. Gennett is the 17th player in major league history to perform the feat, the last having been Josh Hamilton in 2012.

The Reds and Padres reach an agreement to trade Ken Griffey, Jr. for Phil Nevin

2002 – The Reds and Padres reach an agreement to trade Ken Griffey, Jr. for Phil Nevin, but Nevin, with a no-trade clause in his contract, nixes the deal. He says he will only agree to a trade to a West Coast team that trains in Arizona. Griffey tore a tendon in his knee during the first week of last season, setting up another season limited by leg injuries. He also pulled a hamstring and strained hip muscles, limiting him to 70 games, a .264 average, eight homers and 23 RBIs.
