Video: Reds' Aristides Aquino Breaks MLB Record with 8th Homer in 12th-Ever Game

Who knew the Cincinnati Reds' decision to trade Yasiel Puig to the Cleveland Indians would open up a spot in the lineup for the greatest debut of power in major league history?

Reds outfielder Aristides Aquino drilled another home run during Monday's 7-6 loss to the Washington Nationals, with this one coming off relief pitcher Tanner Rainey. According to Eddie Matz of, the slugger became the first player in league history to connect on eight long balls in his first 12 career games thanks to the blast.
