Courtesy Elias Sports Bureau:
Ryan Hanigan had eight hits and drove in eight runs over his last three games, all as a catcher. The last Reds player to have at least eight hits and eight runs batted in over three straight games, all as a catcher, was Johnny Bench in 1972. Bench went 8-for-13 with four homers and eight runs batted in from May 30 through June 1 of that season. That was the only such stretch of Bench’s major league career.
