Stat Of The Day: Corey Hart's 30 Watch

One of the few silver linings in today's game was Corey Hart, whose solo home run in the second inning was his first in over two weeks and briefly tied the game at 1.

Hart now has 28 home runs on the season, and if he can hit two more in the Brewers' last nine games he'll become just the ninth Brewer ever to hit 30 in multiple seasons:

Player Seasons Years
Ryan Braun 5 2007, 2008, 2009, 2011, 2012
Prince Fielder 5 2007, 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011
Jeromy Burnitz 4 1998, 1999, 2000, 2001
Gorman Thomas 4 1978, 1979, 1980, 1982
Richie Sexson 2 2001, 2003
Greg Vaughn 2 1993, 1996
Cecil Cooper 2 1982, 1983
Ben Oglivie 2 1980, 1982

Right now Hart (who hit 31 home runs in 2010) is one of nine Brewers with exactly one 30 HR season. The others are Bill Hall (2006), Carlos Lee (2005), Geoff Jenkins (2000), John Jaha (1996), Rob Deer (1986), Larry Hisle (1978), George Scott (1975) and Tommy Harper (1970).

Hart is eleventh on the Brewer all time list with 152 home runs. He needs eight more to tie Paul Molitor for tenth place.
