2019 MLB Top Weekly Moments Recap (August 30-September 5)

There were again some historic feats around Major League Baseball in the past week, along with the creation of a new classic reaction gif.


Astros ace Justin Verlander throws third career no-hitter along with 14 strikeouts, becoming sixth player in MLB history to have three career no-hitters. The next day, teammate Gerrit Cole struck out 14 batters, making the pair the first teammates to have 14 strikeouts in back-to-back games since 1893.







Angels star Mike Trout becomes the youngest player in MLB history to join the 200-200 club (200 career home runs and 200 career stolen bases). Trout also became the first American League center fielder to hit 45 homers in a season since Ken Griffey Jr. in 1999.





The Twins break the record for home runs in a season—and they set it before September. The record was previously held by the 2018 Yankees.






The Reds’ Michael Lorenzen became the first player to earn a win as a pitcher, hit a home run, and play the field in the same game since Babe Ruth in 1921.





Marlins pitcher Brian Moran struck out his brother Colin Moran in his MLB debut. It was the first time a player has pitched against his brother in an MLB debut since 1900.




Viral moment of the week: Phillies catcher J.T. Realmuto’s eye roll out of frustration for the team giving up the lead on a weak hit made it appear that he was disgusted at reliever Jared Hughes sprinting to the mound. Realmuto confirms it was just bad timing with the cameras and he 100% was not rolling his eyes at manager Gabe Kapler or Hughes, but it still made for a hilarious moment.
