"Just by the noise of the barrel", Brebbia told reporters afterward, "I thought what that sounds like, sounds like I'm not going to use that ball again".
Baltimore trailed 4-1 after six innings and 5-3 in the ninth. Daniel Norris (2-4) gave up four runs (three earned) on five hits while striking out seven in six innings. It was his 19th start of the season and his sixth in the outfield.
"I'm amazed by it", Price said of Gennett's massive night. "I'm still trying to settle in a little".
RED SOX 5, YANKEES 4: Mitch Moreland and Hanley Ramirez hit back-to-back home runs and Andrew Benintendi later connected off struggling Masahiro Tanaka, powering Boston past NY at New York.
As cool as that home run was, it brought up several awesome stories about the Reds utility man, who played left field in this game. In eight seasons as a pro (both minors and majors), he had only hit ten or more home runs in an entire season once, last season when he hit 14.
Gennett joins an elite club of Major League Baseball players that have hit four home runs in one game.
In the third inning, he smacked a grand slam off of Adam Wainwright. Consider that Gennett had just three home runs in 117 plate appearances this season before hitting the four.
"It's very emotional. It was an honor to witness that".

Herzog added that there were far more pressing matters in Jerusalem than the presence of the USA embassy there. President Trump speaks at the Israel Museum in Jerusalem on May 23.
Hall of Famer Randy Johnson got to 20 in 2001 for the Arizona Diamondbacks and Washington Nationals ace Max Scherzer did it most recently last season.
Two outs later, Wainwright (6-4) grazed Eugenio Suarez with a pitch and Gennett, who started in left field as Adam Duvall got a day off, singled to left field for a 1-0 Cincinnati lead. However, the Cardinals haven't shown me anything over the last week to warrant me putting any faith in them, especially after the Reds pasted St. Louis on Tuesday. He's started four games at third base this year, which he'd never played in the majors.
Anyway, Gennett's game scores 31 points - just one behind the all-time mark, although remarkably, only tied for the best score of 2017.
Phillies 3, Braves 1: Aaron Nola allowed a run over eight innings, Odubel Herrera doubled in the go-ahead run in the sixth and the Phillies survived a ninth-inning scare to beat the Braves.
Wainwright's streak of scoreless innings ended at 17 in the first.
Before the outburst, Gennett had 39 career homers in 1,755 plate appearances over five seasons, with a career high of 14 previous year.
Gennett was actually born in Cincinnati, although he moved to Florida when he was 9 years old.
