On Wednesday night, the Atlanta Braves' Adam Duvall became just the second player in National League history to hit three home runs at Fenway Park.

This comes just one day after teammate Marcell Ozuna became the first player to ever do it, giving the Braves an absolutely insane record.

No matter how you look at this situation, it's one of the most impressive records you will find. Ozuna's three-HR game on Tuesday was the first of his career — he'd only ever hit 2 home runs a single game nine times before that. Duvall's accomplishment may have been even more surprising. He has just five career 2-HR games to his name, with his first-ever 3-HR game coming on Wednesday.

The National League had never had a single player hit 3 home runs in a single game at Fenway. Duvall and Ozuna had never hit 3 home runs in a single game at any major league ballpark. And now the Braves teammates have both pulled off the incredible feat.

Led by their high-powered offense (No. 4 in the MLB with 5.33 runs per game), the Braves' +1200 odds to win the World Series rank fourth in the majors on FanDuel Sportsbook.
