"The baseball gods were good to me," Recker said. "They gave me a couple of knocks. I'll take it."
The four hits are a career high for Recker, and it's the first time he's had that many in a single game at any level since he went 4-for-5 on Aug. 11, 2010 for the Triple-A Sacramento River Cats.
Recker has started seven of the team's 11 games since Travis d'Arnaud went down with a concussion, splitting time with Centeno. His four base knocks Sunday improved his average on the season from .194 to .242.
