The Twins catching prospect went 4-for-4 for his second straight four-hit game Tuesday, leading the Double-A New Britain Rock Cats to a 3-0 blanking of the Binghamton Mets.
"You can't really go wrong with four hits two nights in a row," said Herrmann, a 2009 sixth-round Draft pick. "Baseball is a weird game. The ball just looks like a beach ball right now. I'm going through this phase where everything looks good and I feel like I can hit anything.
"I'm pretty happy right now and, hopefully, I can carry it on tomorrow. Even though I got four hits, I'm more proud about catching a shutout. It means the pitchers have faith in me."
The Twins' No. 17 prospect singled to right field with one out in the first inning, then pulled a ball down the right-field line for another single that loaded the bases in the third.
The Texas native beat out an infield hit with two outs in the fifth off Mets starter Collin McHugh.
"It was a hard ground ball up the middle and he didn't have a chance to throw me out at first," Herrmann said. "I can run [4.2 seconds] down the line, which is pretty good for a catcher. You don't see that often.
With the bases full again in the seventh, he capped his latest four-hit night by going the opposite way for a two-run double off Brad Holt.
"I'd never faced [Holt] before," Herrman noted. "The past few at-bats, he was all over the place and I was evaluating how he was throwing. I knew he would come to me because he didn't want to get behind with the bases loaded."
In four at-bats, the 24-year-old backstop saw only nine pitches.
"I was being aggressive and looking for pitches to hit," he said. "I saw the ball well the night before, so I wasn't going to let good pitches go by.
"I've had two or three games where I've had a couple hits in a row, but I've never had four hits in back-to-back games. This was a first for me."
In the opener of the three-game series on Monday, Herrmann was 4-for-5 with a double and three runs scored. He's raised his average 37 points in two days to .275.
The four-hit performance was the sixth of Herrmann's career. He achieved the feat twice in a nine-game span with Rookie-level Elizabethton in 2009 and did it twice last season in his first trip through the Eastern League.
"I think I got off to a slow start this year because some of the teams saw me last year and picked up on my weaknesses. Now I'm figuring things out, and that's good because the higher you go up, everybody knows everything about every player," the University of Miami product said.
"It's going to be tough to [replicate it]. I would be happy with just one hit tomorrow. The pitching up here is tough, so you have to give credit to the pitchers. I'll try to get that first hit out of the way tomorrow and go from there."
Herrmann provided more than enough support for New Britain starter Logan Darnell (5-2), who scattered seven hits over seven innings while striking out four.
Luis Perdomo pitched around two hits and a walk while fanning two in the eighth and Bobby Lanigan struck out a pair in a hitless ninth to earn his third save.
Estarlin De Los Santos was 2-for-4 out of the leadoff spot and James Beresford had two hits and scored a run for the Rock Cats.
McHugh (4-3) was ejected in the seventh. He was charged with two runs on eight hits with three strikeouts over six-plus innings.
