Home Run Quick Hits

When Brandon Moss hit the Cardinals’ Major League leading 31st home run of the season in the 5th inning, the question crossed my Twitter feed. How many three run home runs have the Cardinals hit this year? The answer? Nine.

Here are some quick hits about home runs so far this season.

  • With this 5th home run in the 20th game of the season, Brandon Moss is currently on pace for 41 home runs. It’s nice to dream, isn’t it?
  • The Cardinals are on pace to hit 251 home runs this season. That would be the most since Toronto hit 257 in 2010.
  • The Cardinals hit their 31st home run on April 26th. Last year it took them until May 17th. In 2014, until June 3rd.
