Late last month, Washington Nationals outfielder Kyle Schwarber became the first player in Major League Baseball history to hit 15 home runs in a 17-day span.
But Schwarber left Friday's game in the second inning, and the former Middletown High School standout was placed Saturday on the 10-day injured list with an injured right hamstring. He will be sidelined indefinitely.
On Monday, Schwarber hit two more home runs - his 23rd and 24th of the season - in an 8-4 win against the New York Mets. Schwarber hit his 25th home run of the season on Tuesday against the Tampa Bay Rays.
Social media reactions from earlier in the week:
Schwarber, 28, is in his seventh Major League Baseball season - his first with the Nats.
