Who the heck is Scooter Gennett?

Adjust Comment Print

Gennett previously had just one multi-home run game in his career, a two-homer performance against the Rangers when he was with the Brewers on August 13, 2013. Still, before Tuesday's game, Gennett hadn't homered since April 11, a span of 97 plate appearances with no titanic blasts into the stands, no wind-aided flies clearing the fence, not even a single measly wall-scraper in the rightfield corner.

Scooter the Muppet has been known to say "I'll go for anything you need".

Scooter Gennett just did something that only 16 Major League Baseball players have ever done before. He was a surprise cut late in the 2017 spring training, as the Brewers chose to go with Jonathan Villar at second base and use Hernan Perez as a utility man.

Carlos Martinez gave up four runs in 6 1/3 innings Monday in a loss to the Reds.

Congrats to Mr. Gennett for an unbelievable evening.

ISIS claims responsibility for attack against Copts in Egypt
The militant Islamic group Hamas that rules Gaza condemned Friday's attack, the Associated Press reported . Minister Sameh Shoukry said that was the justification for a series of Egyptian airstrikes on the bases .

He hit homers worth one, two (twice), and four runs; he sprayed them to left, center, and right.

Gennett went deep twice for the Brewers against the Rangers in Arlington on August 13, 2013.

A scrappy second baseman, Gennett began the night with 38 career home runs, including three this season.

It might have been a home run only in the small confines of the Great American Ballpark, but the box score doesn't care about dimensions. Even Gennett said after the game that he was surprised, "but that's baseball, I guess". "I made a few adjustments, not so much with my stance but just more trying to relax, and I think I was able to swing at better pitches, and the end result was pretty good". John Gant, though, gave up Gennett's second home run - a two-run shot in the fourth - and saw it land well up the grassy hill in center. "To do something that's never been done, I can't put words on it, but it's an honor for sure". He is 9-4 career against Cincinnati.
