Interesting stat from Baseball Reference.

The Reds crushed 7 home runs against the Cubs today, including 3 by Drew Stubbs (as well as single homers by Corky Miller, Brandon Phillips, Jonny Gomes, and Paul Janish.)

Amazingly, the Reds have cornered the market on 7-homer games. They now have the last 4 in MLB:

July 4th, 2010, at Chicago Cubs: Drew Stubbs (3), Brandon Phillips, Jonny Gomes, Paul Janish, Corky Miller. 14-3 win.

I was at a game at Wrigley (where else?) in 2006 when I think they had six. Edwin Encarnacion had a grand slam and Arroyo had his second home run in as many game for the Reds.

That was quite a fun day.

edit: Yep, it was six homers. I made this stellar graphic at the time as a keepsake.

Joey was involved in all of those games until today's game. He probably would have hit everything out with the combination of being snubbed by the All Star selections and the wind blowing out today, LOL :laugh:

Well, he was 'involved' in this one too. His replacement in the batting order, Paul Janish, had one of the HRs.

That's true athough I think this one was more of an assist, LOL :laugh:

Interesting that there was a Phillips in every game, though one of them you probably wouldn't guess.

Paul Janish is the first major league player to enter a game as a sustitute and go 4 for 4 with a HR since Paul O'Neil did it in 1990.
