|Monday, September 26th, 2022: Hooray for Harris! Hammers 5 Hits!|
On top of the Cleveland hit parade today was Daniel Harris. He went to the plate 6 times and marched away with 5 hits, sparking the Indians to a 14-11 victory over the Cincinnati Reds. He certainly had their number at the plate in this record-making 5-6 performance.
The sweet swinging second baseman told reporters, "Each time I went to the plate, I was thinking about hitting the ball hard somewhere. When I focus on that, I usually have quality at-bats."
The skipper of the Reds wailed to the press, "Too much plate. Not the way we planned it. Any hitter in the league will rip you when you do that."
D. Harris grounded out in the 1st, singled in the 3rd, hit an RBI single in the 4th, hit an RBI double in the 6th, singled in the 8th and hit a two-run home run off G. Martínez in the 10th.

He walloped 5 hits in 5 at-bats in his career-day performance to help the Orioles get by the Reds 20-6.
In a talkative and jovial mood after the game, the third baseman of the Orioles exclaimed, "Whoa, my swing was really, really there today. I made some good, sweet-spot contact and when that happens...good things happen...like 5-5. I could get used to a lot of days like this one."
N. Castellanos hit an RBI single in the 1st, singled in the 3rd, singled in the 4th, hit a GRAND SLAM off G. Martínez in the 5th, hit a GRAND SLAM off A. David in the 7th and walked in the 8th.

D. Barton singled in the 1st, hit a three-run home run off E. Coleman in the 2nd, hit a solo-shot off R. Tepera in the 4th, walked in the 6th and hit a solo-shot off G. Davis in the 8th.
