Alex Rodriguez's nephew Joe Dunand must have the same swing gene as his uncle, as he hit a home run on eight straight swings in a high school baseball tournament in Florida last week.

Dunand's offensive explosion led his Gulliver Prep squad to a third place finish in the tournament, and earned the awe of coach Javier Rodriguez, who likened the performance to a video game.

Dunand went 10-12 with nine HR over five games and was named offensive MVP of the tournament, in what was likely the easiest vote of all time.
