    The Reds and 7-homer games

    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.

    July 10th, 2008, at Chicago Cubs: David Ross (2), Joey Votto, Adam Dunn, Ken Griffey Jr., Edwin Encarnacion, Brandon Phillips. 12-7 win.

    Three of the four games have been against the Cubs.
    I miss Adam Dunn.

    Re: The Reds and 7-homer games

    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.

    There is no such thing as a pitching prospect.

    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

    An MLB.com reporter asked what one thing Votto couldn’t do. “I can’t skate or play hockey,” Votto said. “Well, I can skate ... but I can’t stop.”

    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

    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.
