All off the same Brewers picher. Ouch!

Apparently, it's the only time the 5 HRs in an innning has ever been done against the same pitcher. I guess the other managers all decided to try to stop the bleeding.

I saw one other interesting bit of trivia - 4 of the other 5 instances of 5 HRs in an inning all happened against the Reds.

RE: Rendon and the Nats
As many pitching staffs that are 13 man staffs these days, you would think the Brewers would have gone to the pen earlier. Especially because they were throwing a 28-year-old journeyman who was making his first career start after 108 career relief appearances (and he also had allowed a homer in the 1st inning so he gave up 6 in 2.1 innings). They did yank him after Rendon's homer.

I think another reason for the increased offense this year has been the warm weather throughout the country. I didn't realize this but Minute Maid Park is the best pitchers' park in the majors this year, and it's really not even close.
