The massive three-team trade with the Indians and Padres did more than send Trevor Bauer to the Cincinnati Reds. From there, the wheels started to fall off: Hendricks issued five consecutive hits to Nick Senzel, Tucker Barnhart, José Peraza, Sonny Gray, and Jesse Winker and was finally lifted for the newly-recalled Dillon Maples, who brought a swift and merciful end to the Reds' four-run rally.

Because both these guys made it rain Saturday night - each hitting three home runs. Aquino struck out swinging when he faced Mills again in the seventh.

Had the rookie slugger tacked on another dinger to his performance on Saturday, he could have become the first Major League Baseball player to craft a four-homer game since 2017 and the first rookie to do so - ever.

In Aquino's next at-bat in the sixth, reliever Alec Mills walked him on four straight pitches - none of which came close to the strike zone - drawing boos from the standing crowd at Great American Ball Park.

The Reds rookie right fielder delivered his grandest act yet on Saturday, not only homering three times against the Cubs, but doing all of his damage in the first four innings.

Aquino did have two chances at a fourth home run. In the same game, he set the mark for fastest throw by an outfielder, at 101.5 miles per hour, when he threw a ball from right field to third base.

The 25-year-old rookie is staying humble.

Aquino opened his stance this season to provide more power, and has become an overnight sensation in his last nine games with Cincinnati.
