From our friends at Elias Sports Bureau

Todd Frazier and Zack Cozart each hit two home runs in the Reds’ 15-0 win over the Nationals. It’s the first time in Reds history (which goes back to the 1800s) that they had multiple-homer games by their starting shortstop and third baseman in the same game.

Frazier and Cozart were the first starting shortstop-third base tandem to each go deep twice in a game for a National League team since the Pirates’ Jackie Hernandez and Richie Hebner did that in 1971 for a Pittsburgh team that would go on to win the World Series.
