New York, May 29 (THAINDIAN NEWS) Baseball can sometimes be an odd and surprising game. What happened last Sunday to Todd Frazier from the Cincinnati Reds evidences this argument.

Last Sunday, at the Great American Ballpark, the Rockies and Reds combined to hit a record nine home runs in Cincinnati’s 7-5 victory. The most spectacular moment of the game was Frazier’s solo home run.

As he was in process of swinging, the bat slipped right out of Frazier’s hands, when he made contact with Moyer’s 72 mph changeup. Frazier’s bat went flying and he accomplished an amazing no-hands home run, with the ball wounding up in the seats, homering off of the Rockies’ Jamie Moyer. His homer enabled the Cincinnati Reds to out-bash the Colorado Rockies, ending on a 7-5 win, during a game that saw nine round-trippers.

Last week, the Frazier hit a walk off home run in the bottom of the ninth against the Atlanta Braves. He is a right handed infielder/outfielder. He played as a shortstop in college, but was converted to outfield in 2009. He played left field and third base for the Cincinnati Reds in 2011. Frazier was born in Point Pleasant, New Jersey.
