Wednesday May 15th, 2013

CARGO had himself quite the day at Wrigley Field - ding yard work at the dish twice.  While his career home and away splits favor his Coors Field Play - he is leading the NL with Runs this year with 31

CARGO had himself quite the day at Wrigley Field – doing yard work at the dish twice. While his career home and away splits favor his Coors Field Play (.348/.409/1.041 – Coors Field Career), his 2013 numbers look better on the road OPS of 1.063 to .858 thus far.   Gonzalez is leading the NL with Runs Scored this year.  It still must be noted that 4 of his Road HRs have come in hitter friendly Miller Park and Wrigley Field.  Wait to see what the Averages are at the end of the year.  Has he matured as a hitter – or is this just a small sample size?

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.

Adrian Beltre has really started to heat up - having hit for HRs in 3 out of the last 4 games and driving 9 RBI in his last 8, with a .387 BA.  Moreland has hit 3 HRs in his last 2 Games - and has clubbed 6 Taters in his last 9 contests.  Both men are tied with teammate Nelson Cruz for the club lead at 9 (good to be tied for 5th In the American League)

Both men are tied with teammate Nelson Cruz for the club lead at 9 (good to be tied for 5th In the American League).  The Rangers have parlayed these hot streaks into the being tied for the top record in the AL at 25 -14, (tied with the Yankees) and have a 6 Game Lead on the 2nd place holders of the AL West (Oakland Athletics).  Despite what happened at the end of 2012, it looks pretty good for the Rangers to lock down a playoff spot this year because of the weaker Division.

Pablo Sandoval hit a HR for the third straight game – while Brandon Belt hit a HR for the 2nd game in a row.

Mitch Moreland hit 2 HRs last night, has homered in 2 straight – and is one of 11 guys tied for the 5th spot in the AL HR King.

Adrian Beltre hit a HR to enter the top 5 AL Batters.

Carlos Beltran hit a HR to tie 3 other players for 2nd – 3 longballs behind the NL leader Justin Upton.

Carlos Gonzalez had a Multi HR game yesterday – as part of hi 5 – 5 game at Wrigley Field.

The Angels hit 4 HRs last night

There were 27 HRs hit in 15 Games or a 1.80 HRs per game (.90 per team) for May 14th

Pablo Sandoval has hit a HR in 3 straight games for the Giants. Listed on baseballreference.com at 240 LBS (yeah - right, more like 270) has not slowed down his bat speed.  He enters today's game with a 3 Slash Line of .316/.358/851.  He also has only fanned 16 times in 39 Games and 165 Plate Appearances.  It is nice to see you can have a guy hit for power without Striking Out 150 times a year.  Sandoval has 7 HRs and 29 RBI (6th in the NL) so far this year.

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/
