2014 Top Home Run Hitters: AL/NL, HR Streaks (3 Active) + Multi HRs: Myers + Stanton W/Big Days

Giancarlo Stanton is healthy, motivated and when he is on, no ballparks can hold his behemoth blasts in.  Of his 10 HRs, 9 of them have traveled further than 400 Feet.  In the young season, Stanton leads the NL with HRs (10), the Majors with RBI (36) and Total Bases (NL - 74).  The 24 Year Old from Panorama, CA has Slashed .285/.362/.603 - and is a major reason why the Marlins are just a game and a half behind the NL Division Leader.

It was quite the day yesterday for the Tater Trots in the MLB.  Giancarlo Stanton hit 2 big thunderous HRs – to take sole possession of the NL HR lead, in carrying his team to a series win versus the Dodgers, and the Marlins are now 14 – 5 at New Marlins Ball Park this year.

George Kottaras came off the scrap heap to paste 2 shots over the fence.  These HRs represented the only two big flies of the year for the Catcher.

Brandon Crawford hit 2 HRs in the GIants sweep of the Atlanta Braves.  Where Pablo Sandoval has failed for power so far, the INF tandem of “Team Brandon, Belt, Hicks and Crawford” have combined for 16 HRs in 277 AB from the 1B/2B and 3B.

When you throw in Buster Posey‘s totals, then it is 23 HRs in 382 AB.  “Kung Fu” 3B needs to get off the snide in his contract year.

Wil Myers continues his ownership of the Yankees, with an Inside The Park 3 run HR, and adding an RBI Double – keying a 5 -1 win over the Bronx Bombers and CC Sabathia, clinching the series 2/3.

It was the 2nd straight game in which Myers did some yard work, and he also had a 2 HR game against the Pinstripers on Apr.19..  Read a Captioned picture at the end of this article to see his prowess over the Yanks thus far in his short career.

Jonathan Villar of the Houston Astros hit a HR for the 2nd straight contest.

Jose Abreu added to his MLB lead in HRs with his 12th Roundtripper. Read the rest of this entry

This should turn out to be quite fun.  A lot of gambling establishments have this sort of deal, and it will be fun to see the results.

What Runs Survivor is, a MLB team scoring 0,1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9, 10 or (10+) in different games throughout the course of the season.

Once a club has one of these run totals once, you cross it off and keep going until they complete the 11 different variations.  We are going to keep tracking this category – until all 30 MLB clubs are finished this season!

Detroit has now won 5 games straight, and on Saturday night, they completed their 11th variation.  They beat Seattle by 3 games to the clip, even though the Mariners finally completed all 11 – finishing in 10th, even though they were the 1st club to 10. Read the rest of this entry
