|Friday, April 26th, 2030: 5-Hit Barrage by Hiura|
Keston Hiura really did a number on the Reds in the Atlanta 11-2 victory. Not just anyone can get 5 hits in 6 at-bats. But Keston Hiura did just that today for the Braves and gave his batting average a healthy boost and sparked his club in the win.
"I felt real good in the batter's box today. I had confidence in my swing and knew that it was there and that I could get the job done," the 26-year-old second baseman said after his record-setting performance.
K. Hiura doubled in the 1st, flied out in the 2nd, singled in the 5th, singled in the 6th, singled in the 7th and singled in the 9th.
Hiura is batting .293 with 1 home runs and 5 RBIs this season.
|Thursday, April 25th, 2030: Faulkner Cracks 5 Hits|
Today the Marlins downed the Reds 17-3 as Chris Faulkner sprayed hits all over Pro Player Stadium in a 5-hit explosion, finishing up with 5 hits in 5 at-bats.
The Floride catcher said to SION reporters in the postgame interview, "It makes it easier if you get a good pitch. The odds are in your favor then, not the pitcher's. I got a bunch of very pretty pitches to hit today, and I didn't miss any of them."
C. Faulkner hit a solo-shot off B. Snell in the 3rd, doubled in the 5th, tripled in the 6th, hit an RBI double in the 7th and hit a GRAND SLAM off K. Davis in the 8th.
For 2030 Faulkner is hitting .338 with 3 home runs. His stats include 12 RBIs and 14 runs scored.
|Thursday, April 18th, 2030: Cincinnati Second Baseman Will Miss 4 Weeks|
Watching Corey Seager getting helped off the field today at Cinergy Field, fans of the Cincinnati Reds feared the worst. The news wasn't quite as bad as initially feared, but the second baseman will miss 4 weeks with a strained rib cage muscle. "We feel we've dodged a bullet. When you see a guy break down like that, you worry right away," a team spokesman said. Seager suffered the injury colliding with a player at a base in the game against the Astros.
This season Seager has hit at a .304 clip with 18 RBIs, 4 home runs and 15 runs scored. He has played in 17 games.
