Vladimir Guerrero Hits Career HR #400

New, 30 comments

Angels slugger Vladimir Guerrero got two steps closer to Cooperstown on a 2 HR night. He hit the 399th and 400th Homeruns of his career, ranking him 45th all time at age 34. The benchmark blast was an uncharacteristic opposite field shot that hit the RF foulpole in Angels Stadium, igniting the near capacity crowd and giving the Angels the lead in a close, high-scoring game against the playoff-contending Tampa Bay Rays.

43. Jason Giambi - 407
      Duke Snider - 407
45. Vladimir Guerrero - 400
46. Andres Galarraga - 399
      Al Kaline - 399
48. Dale Murphy - 398
49. Joe Carter - 396
50. Graig Nettles - 390

Rays reliever Russ Springer surrendered Vlad's 400th Homer. Guerrero hit his 399th in the 2nd inning off of Starter Matt Garza.
