Adrian Gonzalez Home Run Guarantee Falls Short

“I’ll start hitting home runs,” Adrian Gonzalez said after Wednesday’s game. “I’ll hit a homer (Thursday).”

So, now that Thursday’s game is in the books, how did he do? Well, upon hearing Gonzalez’s comments, David Price retweeted this to his 87,000+ followers:

So, Gonzalez was drilled by a pitch (likely on purpose) in his first at-bat. If I were to do some sports betting, I would have put my money on Gonzalez getting a HBP.

In his next at-bat, Gonzalez hit a long, long fly ball that was just foul to right field (as seen in the picture for this post). It wasn’t fair, but the home run swing off the lefty Matt Moore was there. He deserves that much credit.

In the end, Gonzalez finished 0-3 with a HBP, a strikeout, a ground out and a fly out. He’s now on pace for 9 home runs, 60 doubles, and 85 RBI… though it is early.
