Monday May 13th, 2013

Justin Upton hit his 1st HR in 2 weeks yesterday - and the club re-assumed the Major League lead for Roundtrippers with 52 in 38 Games Played.  The club is 7th in the NL for OBP (.312), 11th in Team BA (.243) and are 42 SO ahead of the next team with 351 batters fanned.

The club is 7th in the NL for On Base Percentage (.312), 11th in Team Batting Average (.243)- and are 42 Strikeouts  ahead of the next team with 351 batters fanned (San Diego Padres with 309).  Atlanta is 22 – 16 – and still holds a 1 game lead over the Washington Nationals for the National League East.  Upton went 4 – 5 in his 1st game back in Arizona, falling just a Triple short of the cycle.

DH on our home site pages – Stands for Daily HR Hitters in the Majors.

We are going to run the gauntlet on the previous days HRs for all MLB Players.

I loved it when MLB XM Radio used to do a running total every night on their Roundtrip with Mike Ferrin (Laser Show).  So I am bringing it every day on this website.  To view every nights big boppers for the whole year (from May 8th on) visit the DH page!

Click beyond the Youtube link or click  the READ THE REST OF THIS ENTRY ICON to see who hit yesterdays big flies.

Despite a 15 - 24 Start - and a last place residency in the AL thus far, the Blue Jays lead the American League with 51 HRs - and have the 3 out of the top 5 HR leaders - with Edwin Encarnacion tied for 1st - (and Joey Bats and J.P Arencibia tied for 5th)

There was only one player with a Multi HR effort yesterday – and that was Aaron Hicks.

Nobody extended a consecutive streak with multiple days.

The Kansas City Royals collected 19 hits – however they did not hit a HR.

10 teams retroactive from Sunday + all 14 HR hitters yesterday – will have a chance to go for 2 consecutive days with yard work tonight.

OAK – Yoenis Cespedes (7) and Brandon Moss (6)

Total HRs hit (15) in 11 Games (1.27 HRs per game and 0.64 per team.)

Perhaps the most surprising HR leader in the MLB right now is Vernon Wells. He is a 3 time 30+ HR guy in the past, however he was only able to put 11 HRs last year with the Angels. In 2013, he has a 3 Slash Line of .299/.352/.875 through play Monday night. The former ALL - Star has collected many key hits for the Bronx Bombers. Wells was traded to the New York Yankees from the LA in the Spring - with the Angels eating $28.1 MIL out of the $42.0 MIL Salary remaining on the 2013 and 2014 years of the 34 Year Old OF contract.

About chuckbooth3023

I played competitive baseball until 18 years old and had offers to play NCAA Division 1 University Baseball at Liberty University. Post-concussion symptoms from previous football and baseball head injuries forced me to retire by age 19. After two nearly made World Record Attempts in 2008, I set a New World Record by visiting all 30 MLB Parks (from 1st to last pitch) in only 24 Calendar Days in the summer 0f 2009. In April of 2012, I established yet another new GWR by visiting all 30 Parks in only 23 Calendar Days! You can see the full schedule at the page of the www.mlbreports.com/gwr-tracker . In 2015, I watched 224 MLB Games, spanning all 30 MLB Parks in 183 Days. Read about that World Record Journey at https://mlbreports.com/183in2015/229sked2015/
