ELIAS SAYS…

From our friends at Elias Sports Bureau

• There were nine home runs hit in the first five innings of the Rockies-Reds game Saturday afternoon.  It’s the first game with that many home runs in the first five innings since the Orioles and Yankees had nine on May 27, 2008.  You have to go back to May 17, 1979 to find the last such National League game: that was the Phillies-Cubs game at Wrigley Field that wound up with Philadelphia winning, 23-22, in 10 innings.
