Carlos Beltran hits three HR’s in one game!


Last night, Mets (D.R.) Carlos Beltran accomplished something for the first time in his 13 year career. He hit three HR’s in one game, as the Mets went on to beat the Colorado Rockies 9-5. He went 3-for-5 with three HR’s and six RBI’s. It was his 17th multi-HR game in Mets franchise history that ties him for second with Mike Piazza behind only Daryl Strawberry with 22. It was the eighth three-HR game in Mets histoy; the last being Jose Reyes in 2006. Read the quote, courtesy espn:

“I was always wondering, ‘How’s it feel for those players to get three homers in a game?'” Beltran said. “It feels great. … Being able to [do] something like this, I feel like a little kid, honestly. I was smiling. I never smile a lot, but I was smiling. I was happy.”
