Diamondbacks Lead NL in HRs and are On Pace for Franchise Best 219 HRs | April
logo
After 20 games, the Diamondbacks have hit 27 HRs, and are on pace to break the franchise record of 216 set by the 1999 team (led by Jay Bell 38, Matt Williams 35, Steve Finley 34). This year, the team is led by Mark Reynolds (no surprise) and Kelly Johnson (somewhat of a surprise) with 7. Justin Upton and Chris Young have 3 apiece, with Adam LaRoche, Stephen Drew, and Chris Snyder contributing 2 each. Pitcher Edwin Jackson has the team's other HR. Of the 27 HRs by the team so far, only 11 have been solo shots, while 14 have been 2-Run HRs and there has been 1 3-Run HR and one Grand Slam (by Chris Young). This means that the team has scored a total of 46 runs from Home Runs, out of a total of 104 runs, for a percentage of 44.2%. This puts the Diamondbacks second in the league behind the St. Louis Cardinals, who have scored an amazing 56.3% (49 out of 87) of their runs from the long ball. The complete table for the NL is shown below. The Houston Astros as a team have only hit 7 HRs this season, which ties them with Reynolds, Johnson, Albert Pujols, and Matt Kemp.
