Eugenio Suarez Quietly Breaks NL Record
The Reds slugger is having an incredible individual hitting season
Cincinnati Reds slugger Eugenio Suarez has hit the most home runs by an NL third baseman in the history of the league.
Let that sink in for a second.
While this story flew under the radar because of the market he plays in, itâ€™s a remarkable feat, considering who he passed.
With his 49th HR, Eugenio SuĂˇrez has established a new National League record for HR in a season by a 3B. He was tied with Schmidt and BeltrĂ©. SuĂˇrez extended his single-season HR record for players from Venezuela. George Foster is the only Reds player to hit 50 HR (52, 1977).— Reds Media Relations (@RedsPR) September 25, 2019
Interestingly, a large chunk of his home runs have come in the first inning.Â
