ESPN's article on Harper today notes: Some perspective is in order here: Harper is nine months younger than Kris Bryant and six months younger than Joc Pederson, the early frontrunners for National League Rookie of the Year.

Has matched his HR and SB totals and surpassed his Runs and RBI totals of last year..with essentially the same BABIP.

Everyone's rightfully raving about Stanton's prodigious blast last night in Dodgers Stadium.

But if you want to see a hitter "in the zone" ... check out two run shot by Harper against the D'Backs last night.

De la Rosa actually makes a very good pitch - comes back after a 96 mph fastball to locate an 84 mph changeup low and away, and Harper has to completely adjust his stroke mid-swing - but still reaches out and golfs it over the wall.  The pitch was breaking away from Harper, and I'm not even sure it's in the strikezone when he hits it.

On his previous AB, de la Rosa had Harper down 0-2 and then Harper fouled off everything he offered (including a 98 mph fastball) before slashing a double off a 96 mph fastball. After a sequence like that, a pitcher has to be thinking "what can I do?"

Seeing Harper's 50% pull rate(career 36.8%) and his 37% HR/Fly(career 18.2%) got me to thinking there could be a decent correlation between pull rate and HR/Fly rate particularly for sluggers.

Stan Musial did in 1954 vs Giants. He was the 1st and only other one.

Anybody other than Nate Colbert hitting 5 in one day?

It looks like Howard had 11 in 8 games during that run, but only 18 RBI.

So it appears to be ...

5 HRs in 2 games

7 in 3

8 in 4/5 

10 in 6/7/8

I was a Senators' fan when Frank Howard went on his hot streak (May 12-18, 1968) ... a good friend of mine went to Strasburg's debut, which was Frank Howard bobblehead night ... I'm not much into bobbleheads, but I gotta admit that I enjoy having that one :-)
