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.
Adam Dunn has hit big flies in two straight games and has 9 HRs for the year. His 3 Slash Line still remains a paltry .155/.250/.646 for the year – yet is continually hit in the cleanup spot by Robin Ventura.
Mike Trout and Dayan Viciedo were the other players that hit a HR for 2 consecutive days that did not have their pictures in this article.
Shin-Soo Choo had a Multi – HR game versus the Miami Marlins.
Vernon Wells and J.P. Arencibia both went yard to vault into a tie for 4th with Robinson Cano for the AL Lead. Yesterday there was a 11 player logjam for 5th.
