Ex-Brewer Scooter Gennett ties major league record with four home runs in one game

CINCINNATI (AP) -- Scooter Gennett has tied a major league record by homering four times for the Cincinnati Reds against the St. Louis Cardinals on Tuesday night.

Gennett, who drove in 10 runs, connected for his second career grand slam off Adam Wainwright, then had a solo homer and two two-run shots as he became the 17th major leaguer with four in a game and the first since Josh Hamilton in 2012.

His 10 RBIs matched the club record.

Gennett was claimed off waivers by the Reds before the start of this season. Prior he played for the Milwaukee Brewers for four seasons.
