Here we are at the All Star Break and The King and Kuma are on their way to join in the festivities in New York.
In the meantime, I’ll take a look at the “1st half” highlights over the next couple of days – starting with the consecutive home run streak. Now, those who know me, know my love of defense and that my mantra has always been . . .
Chicks did the long ball but, REAL women love leather
That being said, even I must admit this little home run barrage the guys are on is pretty fun. I mean, it’s been more than a L O N G while since the Mariners were tied for SECOND highest homer total in the MAJORS (115) at the break.
Here’s the distribution of the THIRTY-SEVEN home runs the Mariners have hit during the streak that started on June 20th in Anaheim . . .
- Raul 10
- Kyle 7
- Kendrys 6
- Justin 4
- Jason 3
- Nick 3
- Michael S 2
- Brendan 1
- Guti 1
Raul and Kendrys each hit 2 homers in 1 game twice
- 1 homer – 12x
- 2 homers – 6x
- 3 homers – 3x
- 4 homers – 1x
Here’s to the guys picking up the streak where they left it upon resumption of play on Friday!
and maybe Brad, Dustin, Endy, Henry and Mike Z can get on the board with a contribution or two 🙂
