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!

HR Notes on May.18/2013
There were 3 players that hit a HR for the second straight day. Incredibly, Raul Ibanez has his 2nd 2 Day consecutive streak this week – and has clubbed 5 HRs this week in 5 Games. He will most likely win Player of the Week Award in the AL – unless Jason Kipnis, David Ortiz, Mitch Moreland or Adam Dunn go completely beserk today.
The other players t extend their streaks were Kelly Johnson and Joey Votto.
There was a lot of movement for the lead of the AL HR race. Robinson Cano belted 2 HRs, Edwin Encarnacion, Chris Davis and Mark Reynolds all clubbed their 12 HRs yesterday to tie the Yankee. So now we sit in a 4 way tie for 1st – while Nelson Cruz is in second all by himself.
David Ortiz was the only other player to hit 2 HRs yesterday besides Robinson Cano.
Just one more note. OF Rick Ankiel has hit at least 1 Extra Base Hit in his last 4 games with the Mets (2 HRs and 2 Doubles) – and has hit for a 3 Slash of .300/.333/1.033 in 6 Games during his Mets days. Overall for the year, the 33 Year Old has Slugged .537 – based on 7 HRs and 15 RBI – in just 82 AB.
