Ryan Zimmerman, Dioner Navarro Each Hit 3 Home Runs
Two individual MLB players hit three homes runs each, in one game, on the same day.
One set of homers occurred in the Windy City. Dioner Navarro drove in a career-high six runs on a trio of homers at Wrigley Field, contributing to the Chicago Cubs‘ 9-3 win over the Chicago White Sox.
That was definitely unexpected. Before this offensive outburst, the Cubs’ backup catcher had just 44 career home runs over the course of 10 seasons with five different teams. That’s 2,298 plate appearances and now he decides to show us what he can really do.
This was the first multi-homer game of his career in the majors, because unfortunately, we can’t count the two-homer game that he said he had in little league. Navarro went yard thrice with the same bat, and hit from both sides of the plate.
The other set of homers happened a little farther east. The Baltimore Orioles beat the Washington Nationals 9-6, but Ryan Zimmerman put up a good fight with his set. He totals in at 156 home runs in the majors, but like Navarro, this was surprisingly his first mulit-homer game.
It must really stink to have the best game of your life and still lose, but the Nationals are used to disappointment this season, so Zimmerman shouldn’t beat himself up about it.
