Chicago Cubs

White Sox highlight noteworthy day for HR history


Last Wednesday, Anderson and Eloy Jimenez opened Chicago's game against Detroit with back-to-back home runs off Boyd.


According to the Dodgers' PR department, the last time it happened was June 7, 2001, when Felipe (Giants) and Cesar (Padres) Crespo turned the trick.


*** On the opposite coast, the Washington Nationals' Luis Garcia hit his first career home run, a two-run shot in the second inning in Atlanta against the Braves.


The 20-year-old infielder was born on May 16, 2000, and joined the Nationals late last week after Starlin Castro suffered a broken wrist.


*** On the opposite end of the age spectrum, Minnesota's Nelson Cruz joined elite company with a pair of home runs Monday night.


According to MLB.com's Sarah Langs: "At 40 years & 47 days old, Nelson Cruz is the oldest player with a multi-HR game since a 40-year, 172-day old David Ortiz on May 8, 2016, against the Yankees."
