Cal State Fullerton's Scott Hurst goes 5-for-5 with four home runs

  Scott Hurst had an unbelievable day at the plate Saturday, scoring six runs and seven RBI.

In April, we wrote an article on the exclusive club of superhuman college baseball players who have knocked in four home runs in one game. We weren't expecting to update that article this season.

Cal State Fullerton's Scott Hurst didn't care.

Going into Saturday, only five college players had accomplished the quadruple four-bagger since the NCAA started keeping track in 2012. In fact, only 16 Major Leaguers have done it ever.

Saturday, Hurst added his name to that NCAA record.

The junior outfielder, who is batting .341 on the year, went 5-for-5 at the plate with one walk, six runs, seven RBI, and four dingers on the day as Cal State Fullerton beat CSUN 16-7. What's more, Hurst came a few feet from his fifth home run of the day with his only hit that didn't leave the park — a double off the opposite-field wall.

According to Cal State Fullerton, "Hurst's seven RBI fall just one shy of the school-record of eight runs driven in set by David Olmedo-Barrera on April 4, 2015. The six runs scored are the most since Austin Diemer scored four runs on March 7, 2014. The five hits go down as the most since Matt Chapman also collected five on April 26, 2015 vs. Hawaii."

The school says that alum Sam Favata also recorded four home runs in 1980, but that was before the NCAA began keeping track, and it was not against a Division I opponent.

Record-tying or record-breaking, it was a scorcher of a day for Hurst.
