Brandon Belt hits two-run home run (Video)


There’s nothing quite like the joy of hearing some of the statistics that float around Major League Baseball this time of year. With small sample size qualifiers laid out, we then get to enjoy that fact that certain quirky things are factually true, at least at the moment.

Would you like an example of just such a stat? The San Francisco Giants lead the league with 12 home runs. The next closest team is the Colorado Rockies with nine.

In an interesting divisional game against the Arizona Diamondbacks on Tuesday, first baseman Brandon Belt kept the big-flies coming  in San Francisco with this shot off Trevor Cahill.

With the victory, the Giants moved to 6-2 on the season while the struggling Diamondbacks fell to 2-8 and are currently the occupants of the basement of the NL West.
