Pena also became the first player in over 100 years to register six hits in a game while batting eighth. Wilbert "Uncle Robbie" Robinson was the last before Pena when he rapped out six hits in a game from the eight hole in 1892. Shawn Green was the last player to garner six hits and three dingers in the same game when he registered six knocks and four long balls in 2002.

Adcock scores 5 runs. Joining in on the fun is Eddie Mathews who adds two homers which for those keeping score is a HR record for an infield. Another ML mark is set for extra bases on long hits (40) with the Braves contributing 27.
