2014’s Top Home Run Hitters: AL/NL, HR Streaks (3 Active) + Multi HRs Games

For the 3rd straight weekend, Mark Teixeira has hit HRs in back to back games.  He has begun his 2014 season with power we haven't seen from him in a few years.  Tex has 7 HRs in just 79 AB - with having knocked in 16 RBI.  He is on pace to crack about 40 HRs and add about 100 RBI.  Don't think he will maintain that pace, but a 25 - 30 HRs campaign, with 80 RBI is not out of the question,

For the 3rd straight weekend, Mark Teixeira has hit HRs in back to back games. He has begun his 2014 season with power we haven’t seen from him in a few years. Tex has 7 HRs in just 79 AB – with having knocked in 16 RBI. He is on pace to crack about 40 HRs and add about 100 RBI. Don’t think he will maintain that pace, but a 25 – 30 HRs campaign, with 80 RBI is not out of the question.

Yesterday, Derek Norris hit 2 HRs to lift the A’s to a sweep over the Nationals.  He also had back to back games of HRs early last month, and is featuring an OPS of nearly 1.100.

Dustin Ackley hit HRs in both Saturday and Sunday games to put himself on our board of HRs.  On Sunday, the guy clobbered two balls over the wall to give him 4 on the year. 

Joey VottoTroy Tulowitzki and Mark Teixeira all have been hit big HRs over the last 20 calendar days, all featuring 3 different stints, where they carried HR streak of 2 or more games.

Victor Martinez is also creeping up on the leaderboard with his recent power surge.

Finally, Charlie Blackmon did some yard work giving him 9 HRs and 29 RBI on the young season.  He is tied for 5th in NL HRs. Read the rest of this entry
