The all-time record for home runs in a game is four to 16 different hitters. In 2017, Scooter Gennett and JD Martinez were the latest to accomplish this feat.

As for Paredes, 23, he entered the game Tuesday with just seven career MLB home runs in 87 games. However, five of them came this season. Acquired from the Tigers shortly before the opening in exchange for Austin Meadows, Paredes significantly increased his hard hitting rate and flyball percentage. This means that he may have unlocked some of the power of the Tampa Bay clock. What’s undeniable is that on Tuesday night he unleashed some strength against a Yankee staff that has been the tightest in baseball when it comes to allowed home runs.
