How else to explain this, his first home run as a Dodger, in the sixth inning of tonight's game vs. Pittsburgh?
The home run is the 13th in Pierre's nine-year career. And it wasn't an Alex-Cora-off-the-glove cheapie, either--this ball went deep into the right field seats, atop the scoreboard wall.
In 2008, Juan Pierre now has more home runs than Mark Sweeney. And only two fewer HRs than Andruw Jones!
Holy smokes, maybe there is something magical about this year after all. Congratulations, Juan!
