Edgar Renteria On Pace for 324 Home Runs This Season
by Kris on 4/2/2007 (0)

If Renteria's swinging, chances are it's leaving the stadium.
With two outs in the eighth inning, Edgar Renteria blasted a solo shot off starter Brett Myers to tie the score. He added a second two run shot to lead the Atlanta Braves over the Philadelphia Phillies. The second shot also put him squarely in the company of baseball greats such as Hank Aaron, Babe Ruth, and more recently Barry Bonds.

Assuming Renteria can stay healthy this season and that he continues averaging two home runs per game over the entire 162 game schedule, he will end the season with a record 324 home runs. This would shatter the previous mark of 73 set by Barry Bonds in 2001. Should Renteria add on a few more home runs above his average, it is foreseeable that he could even pass 400 home runs.

"He couldn't get a bunt down, but he could hit a homer," said Phillies manager Charlie Manuel. "After today's performance, I don't think we'll have Renteria bunting anymore. I fully expect him to have a few four to five home run games before the season is through."

"Sometimes you hit the ball good and the ball goes out," said Renteria. "Sometimes it happens twice."

"I thought I had him looking for an off-speed pitch and tried to throw it by him," Myers said. "I didn't make the pitch and he did what he was supposed to do with a bad pitch."
