Bombs Away.

It was 2-for-1 for HR hitters on Sunday afternoon. Seven hitters hit two home runs. I doubt it’s a record, but it caught my eye:

Alfonso Soriano – Washington Nationals (20, 21)
Austin Kearns – Cincinnati Reds (11, 12)
David Wright – New York Mets (9, 10)
Tony Clark – Arizona Diamondbacks (4, 5)
Javy Lopez – Baltimore Orioles (4, 5)
Gerald Laird – Texas Rangers (3, 4)
Ryan Freel – Cincinnati Reds (2, 3)

New York Mets super-prospect, Lastings Milledge hit his first career home run in a 7-6 loss to the San Francisco Giants. The Tigers dropped 2-of-3 to the Red Sox as they enter an off day before travelling to Chicago. I’ll write in-depth about that mess later. I have a splitting headache at the moment and I want to watch one of my favorite pitchers in the league, John Lackey, go against the Cleveland Indians. Too bad I’ll have to suffer JM2 on ESPN.
