Just another 5-for-5 day for Escobar

Tuesday marks the fourth time that Yunel Escobar has gone 5-for-5 (or better) in a game in his MLB career; all three previous instances came in the 2015 season. He's the fourth player in the modern era (since 1900) with at least four such games over a two-season span, the Elias Sports Bureau reports. The previous three are all Hall of Famers:

  • Tris Speaker (1923: three times, 1924: one)
  • Zack Wheat (1924: two, 1925: two)
  • Tony Gwynn (1993: three, 1994: one)
