Historic Day: Hernandez Jolts 4 HR
Fans at Comerica Park won't soon forget the raw display of power put on by Detroit Tigers right fielder Teoscar Hernandez today. Hernandez smashed 4 home runs in Detroit's 16-2 victory over the Boston Red Sox.

"To be honest with you, I have never even thought about hitting this many home runs in a game," Hernandez said to reporters after the game. "Only legends hit this many home runs in a game and I ain't no legend."

In his history-making performance, Hernandez victimized Boston hurlers for 4 hits in 5 at-bats with 4 runs scored and 11 RBIs.

"What he did was unbelievable," said Boston manager Chris L. "My guys gave it their best, but he hit some fine pitches. He was like -- he was in automatic home run mode today. He just had that great swing. It didn't matter what we threw him. It was gone."

Teoscar Hernandez struck out in the 1st, hit a three-run home run off Zach Plesac in the 3rd, hit a GRAND SLAM off Wade Miley in the 4th, hit a two-run home run off Dellin Betances in the 7th and hit a two-run home run off Connor Seabold in the 8th.

To date this season Hernandez is hitting .252 with 23 home runs.
