Alex Rodriguez’s Nephew Slams 8 Home Runs in a Row in High School Tournament | Bleacher Report

We imagine suspended Yankees star Alex Rodriguez is mighty proud of his 18-year-old nephew, who managed to hit a remarkable eight home runs in consecutive at-bats recently. When it comes to stroking baseballs to all corners of the field, it's very much "like uncle, like nephew." The Miami Herald's Ruben Palacios reports that Joe Dunand, a Miami Gulliver Prep senior, was absolutely red hot during the Horizon National Tournament, which took place in Scottsdale, Ariz., over the weekend: In five games, Gulliver went 4-1 and Dunand batted a head-turning .833 (10 for 12) at the plate with nine home runs. Inexplicably, opposing pitchers kept throwing him balls to hit and Dunand did just that — his last eight swings were all home runs. Despite the offensive explosion, Gulliver finished third in the tournament. However, for what may soon be an official record-breaking performance, Palacios also reported that coaches gave Dunand the MVP award before the championship game, which seems like the right decision from where we are sitting. via Alex Rodriguez's Nephew Slams 8 Home Runs in a Row in High School Tournament | Bleacher Report.
