The Boston Red Sox second baseman Trevor Story hit three home runs, had four hits, seven RBI's and a stolen base as the Red Sox rallied from a four-run deficit to beat the Seattle Mariners 12-6 on Thursday night.
Story is 250/1 to be the player to hit the most regular season home runs and he became the first second baseman in MLB history to steal a base in a three-homer game, according to Elias Sports Bureau.
He also joined Jim Tabor as the only Red Sox players with five runs, three home runs and seven RBI's since runners batted in became an official statistic in 1920.
This is Story's first season of a $140million, six-year contract and prior to the night, things hadn't gone well.
The 29-year-old had just two home runs in 32 games before Thursday night. He entered the game batting just .205 with 16 RBI's, his batting average had doubled after the night had ended.
Boston fans had been waiting for Story to come alive with the bat after booing him two weeks ago at Fenway Park following a four-strikeout night against the impressive Shohei Ohtani. This time, the 29,783 crowd roared their approval.
Speaking to MLB.com, Story said: "Yeah, it was special. Just, like I've said, this is the best place. It's a great atmosphere and an unbelievable place to play every night. To do it here is something I'll remember forever.
"Baseball is the most challenging sport in the world. I feel like on an everyday basis, you're going to be challenged, especially here. It's something I take a lot of pride in, trying to be very even-keeled about it all. I just believe hard work pays off eventually."
