Jose Reyes has a Memorable Week Full of Home Runs
Jose Reyes became the first player in history to give up two home runs and hit two the next day.
Jose Reyes has had a rough couple of years in the baseball world. From injuries to arrests to playing lousy baseball. This year, being apart of the dumpster fire known as the New York Mets, not much has changed. However, through some of the most bizarre circumstances of the year, Reyes found himself on the mound.
When he entered the game, the score was already 19-1! The Washington Nationals have been on a tear since the All-Star game looking to find themselves back in the playoff picture. During his pitching stint, Reyes was throwing anywhere from 54 miles per hour to about 80 miles per hour. He even beaned Ryan Zimmerman with a 54 mile an hour heater. No one was injured on the play. Anyway, when he entered the game, it was 19-1 and when he left it was 25-1. This is the largest win in the National league in decades. If you are a Mets fan than you know this game pretty much summed up the whole year for the Mets.
However, in baseball, every day is a new opportunity. The score from last night does not carry over to the next game. For Jose Reyes, this is music to his ears and his bat. On the season, Reyes has one homer, for the whole season. He tripled his home run total in one game by hitting two bombs the day after helping his team lose by 21 runs! Is there anything this guy can’t do? Another cool fact about his home runs was that both of them came from separate sides of the plate. One left-handed and the other right-handed. If this is the first time a pitcher gives up two home runs and hits two home runs than I can guarantee you this will never happen again.
