Tater Trot Tracker

Trot Times for May 19

by Larry Granillo

Let's get right to the trots!

Home Run of the Day: Andrew McCutchen, Pittsburgh Pirates #2 - 23.26* seconds [video]
For the second time in two days, Pittsburgh's Andrew McCutchen hits two home runs. This time, however, McCutchen two bombs were responsible for all four runs in the Pirates' 4-3 victory over Prince Fielder and the Tigers.

Slowest Trot: Alfonso Soriano, Chicago Cubs - 26.12 seconds [video]
Soriano walked away with the slowest trot on Saturday, but he wasn't the only one taking his time on the bases. David Ortiz, Carlos Lee, and Asdrubal Cabrera all had 25+ second trots as well, and none had any real excuse for the slow trots. They were just slow.

Quickest Trot: David Murphy, Texas Rangers - 15.4 seconds [video]
An inside-the-park home run from Murphy, helped immensely by Houston's outfielders. On the drive to right-center, the rightfielder dove for the ball right in front of the centerfielder, forcing the centerfielder to jump over him. The ball then rolled to the hill in center, giving Murphy plenty of time to come around to score. It was the fourth inside-the-park home run of the year. The next quickest trot was 19.31 seconds from Dayan Viciedo.
