2014′s Top 5 Home Runs AL + NL, HR Streaks (2 Active) + Multi HR Games:

Heading into play last Thursday night, fantasy players and everyone surrounding the Mariners was wondering what had happened to 3B Kyle Seager.  He has nailed 5 HRs in his last 4 games, and is now hitting for a .798 OPS - with 13 RBI in 79 AB on the young season.  The last 2 years, Seager has hit 20 and 22 HRs respectively - and been the only player on the squad to have decent RBI totals.

With only 6 games being played last night, there were not too many HRs hit for the contests.

This has left the MLB with 2 current players with HR streaks. 

Those players both have clubbed HRs in back to back games, and they are Giants SS Brandon Hicks and Seattle Mariners 3B Kyle Seager, who hit 3 HRs over the Saturday and Sunday games – and has 5 Tater-Trots in the last 4 games.

Seager had exactly zero Home Runs, before squaring 2 baseballs up last Thursday at home versus the Houston Astros, He was blanked by the Rangers on Friday, before doing yard work on Saturday.

Sunday saw the man have his 2n 2 HR game out of 4 contests. Read the rest of this entry

MLB Shutout Survivor 2014: Texas Were Shutout Last Night, Leaving COL + LAA Left

Tulowitzki nearly has an OPS of 1.200 - and has seen his club go 15 - 12 to start the 2014 season.  They along with the Angeles, are the only two teams remaining this year to be blanked.  Justin Morneau also clubbed a HR in yesterday's game - giving him 6 HRs (like Tulo) but the big 1B has a 1 RBI lead (21 - 20).

It is quite surprising that the Rangers held out this long when you consider the power outage from Prince Fielder – couples with injuries to Adrian Beltre and Shin-Soo Choo, but they were blanked for the 1st time last night in the 2014 Season.

Sonny Gray of the Oakland A’s threw a Complete Game Shutout against them, and Yu Darvish so his lifetime record fall to 1 – 7, with a 5.23 ERA versus the Bay Area franchise.

The Rangers have scored 1 run on multiple occasions this year, but had yet to be bageled.

The Angels beat the Indians last evening, by scoring 8 runs.  They have not been blanked.  The Rockies also used a HR barrage to knock off the SF Giants, and run their streak of not having zero runs in the year yet. Read the rest of this entry
