YOU SHOULD HAVE BEEN THERE!!!

1925 Reds pitcher Pete Donohue beats Philadelphia – his five hits (including a homer) were only two fewer than those he allowed.

1990 Chicago’s Andre Dawson is intentionally walked five times during an extra inning game. The last one backfired – the Cubs won in 16 innings, topping the Reds, 2 – 1.

2009 Michael Cuddyer’s cycle includes five RBIs…

2010 Matt Stairs ties a rather interesting record – he homers for his eleventh team, a record he shares with Todd Zeile.
