Sports world reacts to Scooter Gennett's four-homer game

Cincinnati Reds utility player Scooter Gennett became the first player in franchise history to record a four-home run game during the Reds’ 13-1 win over the St. Louis Cardinals on Tuesday.

Gennett’s monumental performance seemed to come out of nowhere. He entered the night hitting 1-for-his-last-20 with three home runs on the entire season.

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

Of course, Gennett’s teammates showed him lots of love.

Gennett, a 27-year-old Cincinnati native, stuck around after the game to meet the 12-year-old fan who caught his fourth homer.

Gennett’s feat was even recognized by a familiar name from the college hoops world, Dick Vitale.

J.A. Adande chimed in with a hilarious take on Gennett, who apparently flies under the radar.

And C. Trent Rosecrans, the Reds beat reporter for the Cincinnati Enquirer, said what every Reds fan was probably thinking following Brandon Phillips’ recent remarks.

After Gennett’s accomplishment Tuesday, we definitely won’t be forgetting the name “Scooter” anytime soon.
