Hez Dispenser

With 30 home dates remaining on the schedule, three more home runs need to be hit to surpass last season’s total at Petco Park. With that in mind, I’ve added a “Launching Pad” tracker to the sidebar. If only we could do something about the fact that 57% of homers at Petco have been hit by the opposition since it opened. ;-)

On the bright side, Adrian “Hez” Gonzalez is en fuego. Two more bombs in Monday night’s snatch ‘em back win over the Phillies — one to left, one to right.

Bar bet winner: Gonzalez is the only player ever to have multiple multi-homer games at Petco Park.

Bar bet winner #2: Gonzalez has as many home runs (18) through July 17 as last year’s season leader for the Padres (Ryan Klesko).
