Adrian Beltre joins the 400 home run club

25 Comments

Rangers third baseman joined the 400 home run club on Friday night when he clubbed a Bruce Chen offering over the fence in center field in the first inning. He is the 52nd player in baseball history to join the 400 home run club and the fifth third baseman (with at least 50% of games played at the position), joining Mike Schmidt, Eddie Mathews, Chipper Jones, and Darrell Evans.

Following the homer, with which he went back-to-back with Prince Fielder, Beltre is batting .248/.286/.421 with five home runs and 13 RBI. He got off to a dreadful start, but has picked it up as of late, going yard three times in his last six games.
