Reds´ Lorenzen pulls off rare feat in win over Phillies

September 5 2019 7:53 AM

Michael Lorenzen did it all in the Cincinnati Reds' 8-5 win over the Philadelphia Phillies on Wednesday.

Reds pitcher Lorenzen threw two innings while recording the win over the Phillies at Great American Ballpark in Cincinnati, but that was not nearly what was so rare.

Lorenzen entered the game in the seventh inning as a pitcher and was left in to hit in the bottom of the eighth.

Reds manager David Bell's instincts were right, though, as the righty hit a home run to break the tie.

But just to add to his odd night, Lorenzen was left in the game in the ninth inning to play centerfield when he was relieved by closer Raisel Iglesias.

Lorenzen became the first player to win a game while homering and playing in the field since Babe Ruth in 1921, according to Stats by Stats.

Lorenzen has played center, left and right field this season and has seven home runs since 2015. 

 

Cano lifts Mets

New York Mets second baseman Robinson Cano went three for three with a home run and two RBIs in an 8-4 victory against the Washington Nationals.

 

Santana struggles against Yankees

Texas Rangers right fielder Danny Santana went 0 for four with three strikeouts in a 4-1 loss to the New York Yankees.

 

Reynolds to the rescue

Pittsburgh Pirates outfielder Bryan Reynolds made two great plays on Wednesday.

And for good measure, he hit a two-run walk-off single to help the Pirates win 6-5 against the Miami Marlins.

 

Wednesday's results

New York Mets 8-4 Washington Nationals
New York Yankees 4-1 Texas Rangers
Cincinnati Reds 8-5 Philadelphia Phillies
Pittsburgh Pirates 6-5 Miami Marlins
Boston Red Sox 6-2 Minnesota Twins
Cleveland Indians 8-6 Chicago White Sox

Oakland Athletics 4-0 Los Angeles Angels
Arizona Diamondbacks 4-1 San Diego Padres
Los Angeles Dodgers 7-3 Colorado Rockies

 

Cubs at Brewers

This is the Milwaukee Brewers' last chance to catch the Chicago Cubs on their own terms. Milwaukee have a four-game series against Chicago this week and they are four games behind the Cubs in the standings. A sweep erases the Cubs' lead. Even winning three of four games is a good thing. But what the Brewers cannot do is lose three out of four. If they do, then their fate is out of their hands since they do not play the Cubs again.
