Jeff Francoeur’s three-run home run off the Marlins’ Tim Wood in the seventh inning of today’s game not only tied the score, but it created a three-way tie for the all-time Citi Field slugging lead. That was Frenchy’s seventh ball to have soared above the Citi walls (4 last year, 3 this year), giving him as many there as Daniel Murphy and David Wright.
I previously neglected to mention Francoeur in considering who might soon rank first in this all-important category. A glaring oversight on my part, and boy am I glad I just had reason to look it up.
(Fernando Tatis has 6, but after a pinch-walk, that total’s not getting any higher as of Sunday afternoon.)
