|Thursday, June 10th, 2027: Young 5-5 for Marlins|
5 hits in a game has always been a magic number in baseball. Only a handful of players will do that. Get 5 hits in a game and you get your moment of glory...your 5 minutes of fame...you get your name in the record book.
In the Marlins 18-7 win over Cincinnati, Matt Young was red-hot today, scorching them for hit after hit at Pro Player Stadium.
"To hit the ball consistently well, you have to relax. I was relaxed for the first four hits, but I must admit, I got too much adrenaline going when I realized that this was a special once-in-a-lifetime chance for the record book. On the last hit, I was ready to swing at anything close, I was that excited. That's why my third base coach called time and told me, 'Calm down and wait for a good pitch.' That got me back on track and I nailed the first one in the strike zone."
On his record-setting day Young delivered 5 hits in 5 at-bats, a day he will not soon forget.
M. Young singled in the 2nd, singled in the 4th, hit a two-run double in the 5th, doubled in the 7th, walked in the 7th and singled in the 9th.
This season Young is swinging the bat at a .289 rate with 22 hits in 76 at-bats. To date he has hit 3 home runs, scored 13 runs and driven in 12.
