HRs Streaks, Multiple HR Games + Top 5 HRs AL + NL IN MLB 2014 So Far: Through Games Apr.12

It was a slow start to the year for Adrian Gonzalez, but now he has hit a HR in 3 straight games, and is hitting for a 3 slash of .267/.333/.623 - with 4 HRs and 11 RBI through his 1st 45 AB.  His play this week is a big reason the Dodgers are back in 1st place heading into action today.

Here at the MLB Reports we look to do things different.  It is one of our many motto’s.

We simply can’t look over every stat, or even chart every HR for that matter, but I have decided that we will carry the top 5 HR hitters for each the AL and NL on a page we have dubbed Stats.

For the HR feature. we will also list multiple HR games for players… Or if they have HRs in multiple games.  Once a week we will post these on the home page for the site as a regular page post.

Bautista and Cabrera both continue to share  lead for the HRs in the AL so far.

Bautista and Cabrera both continue to share lead for the HRs in the AL so far.  Despite their efforts, extremely slow starts for Brett Lawrie and Edwin Encarnacion have the Jays at just the .500 mark heading into play today in a rubber game 3 series vs the Baltimore Orioles.  It looks like Colby Rasmus has decide to join the Canaidan HR Brigade too – with 2 HRs in his last 3 games.  Playing in a great HR park at the Rogers Center, plus Yankee Stadium, Camden Yards and Fenway presents itself with over 2/3rd of the year with great tater – trot stadiums.

Top 5 HR Leaders AL

Jose Bautista, Blue Jays – 4

Melky Cabrera, Blue Jays – 4

Jose Abreu, White Sox – 4

Brian Dozier, Twins – 4

Brandon Belt had the quietest 60 Extra Base Hits in the MLB (17 HRs, 3 - 3B and 39 - 2B) during the 2013 year.  Here he is seen with Pence, who also hit 27 HRs without much fanfare.  Belt is doing even better so far this campaign - with 5 HRs, 9 RBI and a .625 SLG % through his 1st 48 AB.

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/
