Ryan Braun's first inning, three run home run drew more attention, but Casey McGehee's solo shot later in the frame was also pretty statistically notable. It was his first long ball since April 20, snapping the second longest homerless streak of his career and his longest since his first big league homer:
|September 2, 2008||June 13, 2009||34||85|
|April 20, 2011||May 14, 2011||21||79|
|May 20, 2010||June 10, 2010||19||78|
|August 21, 2010||September 11, 2010||19||72|
|July 2, 2010||July 24, 2010||19||70|
It's also worth noting that McGehee was still relatively productive during this streak. He posted a .278/.352/.367 line over those 21 games. That's both the highest OBP (.352) and OPS (.719) he's posted in any of the five streaks listed above.
McGehee now has hits in five straight games and multiple hits in four of them. He's also reached base safely in ten straight games.
