Gennett hits 4 homers, drives in10 as Reds rout Cards”

A look at what's happening all around the majors today: --- BIG SWINGS FOR SCOOTER One night after hitting four home runs to match the major league record, Scooter Gennett tries to extend his stunning power surge when the Reds host the Cardinals again.

Gennett was the 17th player to hit four home runs in one game.

The 27-year-old second baseman had just 38 career home runs entering Tuesday night's contest, then blasted off four times becoming the first member of the Cincinnati Reds to do so.

Mike Cameron, who recorded a four-homer game while with the Mariners in 2002, congratulated Gennett on joining an "exclusive club".

And then, after a first-inning RBI single - the home runs are the headline, but Gennett tallied 10 RBIs, too, making him just the 14th player to do so in modern baseball history - the Red took Adam Wainwright deep in the third inning for the second grand slam of his career. "And he said 'Scooter Gennett.' ..."

After seeing little to no action with New York Mets, Minnesota Twins and Kansas Royals, Humber finally found himself in a starter's role for the second straight season with Chicago White Sox in 2012.

Wainwright's streak of scoreless innings ended at 17 in the first. He was claimed off waivers for the Brewers prior to the start of the season and given Brandon Phillips' No. 4 (Phillips remarked recently that he was insulted the Reds gave the number away).

He stated that "King Salman feels very strongly and, I can tell you, would love to see peace with Israel and the Palestinians". Trump also said that Iran should have thanked the US for the 2015 nuclear agreement, because it led to sanctions being lifted.

Two outs later, Wainwright (6-4) grazed Eugenio Suarez with a pitch and Gennett, who started in left field as Adam Duvall got a day off, singled to left field for a 1-0 Cincinnati lead.

In the fourth, now facing John Gant, he hit another 3-2 fastball, a line drive to center also estimated at 424 feet. Scherzer (7-3), the 2016 National League Cy Young victor, gave up an unearned run in the first inning and allowed three hits with two walks in seven innings. The Orioles trailed 4-1 after six innings and 5-3 in the ninth before coming back. Lance Lynn will start game three and is 4-3 with a 2.97 ERA and 59 strikeouts this season.

Tim Adleman (4-2) gave up one run - on Stephen Piscotty's homer - in seven innings, sending the Cardinals to their season-high fifth loss in a row.

Jason Heyward had three hits and two RBIs and Kris Bryant scored two runs. His performance at Great American Ball Park accounts for 9.5 per cent of his career home run production.

Scooter Gennett wasn't supposed to be in Tuesday's Reds lineup.

Before the outburst, Gennett had 39 career homers in 1,755 plate appearances over five seasons, with a career high of 14 a year ago.
