WATCH: Giancarlo Stanton ties Marlins franchise record for home runs
Stanton just won't stop hitting home runs and it's glorious
On Sunday, Stanton homered. Again. See?
Let's run this down.
- Stanton has homered in each of his last four games.
- In his last 10 games, Stanton has nine homers.
- In his last 33 games, Stanton has 21 homers.
On the last bullet point, for emphasis -- brace yourselves -- 21 homers in 33 games is a 162-game pace of 103 home runs.
On the season, Stanton has 42 homers. That ties him with Gary Sheffield for the most home runs in a season in Marlins history. The top five:
Miguel Cabrera also hit 34 in 2007, but I really just wanted to show the table with almost all Stanton because that's pretty fun.
The home run on Sunday was also Stanton's 250th in his career. Stanton got to 250 career home runs pretty fast as well. It's just his 941st career game. The only players who needed fewer games to reach 250 homers were Ryan Howard, Ralph Kiner, Harmon Killebrew, Albert Pujols and Juan Gonzalez, per Clark Spencer of the Miami Herald.
We've long known Stanton had game-changing power and he's always hit home runs at a high rate. What's nice this season is seeing him stay on the field and put it all together. He's likely to hit 50, probably 55, and has a shot at 60. It's a thing to behold.
