4 HR, 11 RBIs: Cardinals Prospect Goes Nuclear Wednesday Night

Now here's a way to get noticed for a minor league prospect. Just blast 4 home runs, and drive in 11. That'll get the big league team's attention.

St. Louis Cardinals' prospect Chandler Redmon did all that, setting team records.

But even more than four home runs, he actually homered FOR THE CYCLE. A solo blast, a 2-run shot, a 3-run long-ball, and a grand slam. And no, that's never been done in major league history. Incredible. 

In fact, Baseball America is calling it "one of the best single-game performances in the history of professional baseball.

"It's unbelievable," Redmond said. "I don't even know what words to use to describe the feelings right now."

After he had his first three dingers, he knew he was just a 3-run HR away from the HR Cycle.

"Walking up for that last at-bat and seeing two guys on, I'm thinking, 'Oh my gosh, everything is lining up, you can do this. So just stay calm and stay within yourself, but if you get a chance to get a ball to hammer, you better not miss it.'"

He definitely didn't miss... All night long.

And all this for a player selected in the  32nd round—965th overall—by the Cardinals in 2019 . He signed for a modest $3,000.

For the Double-A Springfield Cardinals this season, Redmon is now hitting .242 with 17 HR and 61 RBIs. He has an .848 career OPS in the minors.
