Found May 30, 2013 on Wezen Ball:
If you ever wanted to hit multiple home runs in a single big league game, I guess yesterday was the day to do it. Dioner Navarro, Ryan Zimmerman, Troy Tulowitzki, Domonic Brown, and Chris Davis all took advantage of the special alignment of the cosmos (though some more effectively than others).\ Let's get to the trots! Your browser does not support iframes. Home Run of the Day: Dioner Navarro #3, Chicago Cubs - 25.4 seconds [video] Let's be honest. If I told you that Ryan Zimmerman hit three home runs for the Nationals yesterday, you'd probably nod your head, smile a bit, and say "Good for him." If, instead, I told you that Dioner Navarro had somehow managed to do the same thing for the Cubs, you'd shake your head and laugh, maybe even calling me a liar. See, it's that difference that gives Navarro the Home Run of the Day over Zimmerman. No offense to Zim, of course. Slowest Trot: Dioner Navarro #3, Chicago Cubs - 25.4 seconds [v...

Nava: One of the Big Boys

This year has been a coming out party for Daniel Nava, so to speak. He's established himself this year as a reliable player. According to mlb.com, he's started 43 of 54 games and has a .288 average with 7 home runs, 33 RBI's, and a OPS of .867. Pretty impressive if you ask me.

Triple Threat: Dioner Navarro Hits 3 Homers In A Game

Dioner Navarro hits 3 homers in a game today.

However if you had to pick who the SECOND person to do it would be, the only person that would have...

Four Bases: Red Sox 3, Phillies 4

The first inter-league game of the series didn’t exactly go as planned. With the pitcher hitting, the Red Sox lacked some punch, and now have to hope for a series split.
