Luis Matos had a brilliant night at the plate Friday night. The San Francisco Giants outfielder drove in a whopping five runs in a Giants victory. What we didn’t realize was what he had in store for us for an encore.

Matos followed up his five-RBI performance on Friday with a six-RBI performance on Saturday!

The Giant outfielder provided a much-needed spark to the San Francisco offense, helping to power them to victory again.

It turns out that Matos has had a heck of a two days, and the MLB world took close notice.

Sarah Langs noted several accomplishments and feats that Matos accomplished. He’s been on a tear through the first six games he’s played in this season. “Luis Matos’ 17 RBI are tied for the most by a player in his first six games with a plate appearance of a season,” Langs posted.

Matos also joined elite company with his prolific bat. Matos joins Johnny Bench and Joe DiMaggio as the only other two players to hit 11 RBI in a 2-game span at age 22 or younger, according to Langs.

And he also made Giants history, as he became the fourth player in franchise history to post consecutive games with five RBI or more.

Needless to say, Matos made himself a hot topic this weekend. Plenty around the MLB world had much to say about his prodigious performances.
