Harris has very big night against Cardinals

Willie Harris of the Braves had a 6 for 6 night against the Cardinals in Atlanta.

Harris had four singles and two triples and drove in six runs during the game. He also scored four runs.

The last Braves player to have a 6-hit game was Felix Millan on July 6, 1970 against the Giants. Five other Braves players have had 6-hit games, but they were all in Boston and in the 19th Century. Sam Wise (his nickname was not Gangees), King Kelly, Bobby Lowe, Fred Tenney, and Chick Stahl.

The last player to have a six-hit game that included two triples was Lance Johnson of the White Sox against the Twins on September 23, 1995. Johnson actually had three triples in that game. Harris is the first NL player with a 6-hit, 2-triple game since Larry Twitchell did so on August 15, 1889 for Cleveland. Twitchell hit for the cycle in the game with one single, one double, three triples, and a home run.

I don't know offhand. I assume it's a reliever.
