STAT OF THE DAY (SEPTEMBER 3 vs. NYM)

Adeiny Hechavarria last night became the 6th Marlin to collect 10 or more triples in a single season, and is within three 3-base hits of matching Juan Pierre’s 2005 club record of 13 triples.

Juan Pierre 13 in 2005
Jose Reyes 12 in 2012
Juan Pierre 12 in 2004
Hanley Ramirez 11 in 2006
Adeiny Hechavarria 10 in 2014
Luis Castillo 10 in 2001

Hechavarria is tied for 2nd in the National League with his 10 triples, 2 behind Dee Gordon of the Dodgers.

The only Marlin to ever lead the NL in triples is Juan Pierre, who legged out 12 in 2004.

Despite playing in only 270 games over the last 2 seasons, Hechavarria already stands tied for 8th in Marlins history in career triples despite having played, by far, the fewest games among anyone in the top 10.

Luis Castillo 42 in 1128 games
Juan Pierre 34 in 599 games
Hanley Ramirez 26 in 943 games
Alex Gonzalez 23 in 896 games
Mark Kotsay 22 in 468 games

STAT OF THE DAY (JUNE 25 at PHI)

Image

With his league-leading 20 home runs in 77 games this season, Giancarlo Stanton has slugged 137 long balls in 566 games, 5th-most in Marlins history, and only one behind Miguel Cabrera for 4th place on the club’s all-time list.

Stanton is only 18 homers shy of breaking Dan Uggla’s franchise record of 154, achieved in 776 games.

Here’s a look at Miami’s top all-time sluggers:

Dan Uggla 154 HR in 776 G

Hanley Ramirez 148 HR in 943 G

Mike Lowell 143 HR in 981 G

Miguel Cabrera 138 HR in 720 G

Giancarlo Stanton 137 HR in 566 G

His 20 homers and 58 RBI have Stanton within 4 long balls and 4 RBI of matching his full-season 2013 totals despite 39 more games played and 136 more at-bats a season ago.

Stanton’s current .308 batting average and .401 on-base percentage both represent significant improvements over his full-season career bests of a .290 average in 2012 and a .365 OBP in 2013.

His 89 hits and 42 walks have him on pace to smash his previous highs of 135 hits in 2011 and 74 bases on balls set in 2013.

With 53 runs and 20 doubles, he’s well on his way to surpassing his career-bests of 79 runs scored in 2011 and 30 doubles in both 2011 and 2012. His 7 stolen bases have already surpassed his previous personal high of 6 in 2012.

STAT OF THE DAY (MAY 24 vs. MIL)

Home runs were the story of the night at Marlins Park last night, as the Marlins (4) and Brewers (3) combined for 7 long balls, the most in any of the 188 regular season games that have been played at the Marlins’ 3-year-old home.

The Marlins (2) and Braves (4) combined for the previous record, 6 in a game on June 7, 2012.

Prior to last night, 13 players had hit 2 homers in a game at Marlins Park, but there’d never been a game in which more than one player went deep more than once. Last night’s game saw 3 multi-homer efforts, by Miami’s Giancarlo Stanton and Garrett Jones and by Milwaukee’s Mark Reynolds.

The Marlins had only had 3 players homer twice in a game at Marlins Park before both Stanton and Jones turned the trick last night. Giancarlo had done it twice previously, April 28, 2013 vs. Chicago and May 5, 2014 vs. Los Angeles, while Justin Ruggiano also achieved the feat August 16, 2013 vs. San Francisco.

Stanton’s 2 home runs last night gave him 12 career multi-homer games, tying Hanley Ramirez’s club record. Ramirez posted his 12 2-homer games over 943 games with the Marlins, while Stanton has recorded his 12 in only 538 games, 405 fewer. Next up on the Marlins multi-homer list: Mike Lowell and Dan Uggla with 11, and Preston Wilson with 10.

Since the start of the 2010 season, when Stanton made his major league debut, only 5 big league players have more multi-homer games: Jose Bautista has 20, Albert Pujols 15, Miguel Cabrera and Alfonso Soriano have 14, and Mark Reynolds has 13.

The 2 homers last night gave Stanton 131 in his career, leaving him 24 shy of breaking Dan Uggla’s club record of 154. Stanton stands 5th on the club’s all-time list behind Uggla, Ramirez (148), Lowell (143) and Cabrera (138).

The Marlins have hit 53 homers in 49 games, putting them on pace to slam 175, which would be 80 more than they hit in 2013 (95).

Before last night, the Marlins had last hit at least 4 homers in a game August 26, 2012 at Los Angeles. The last time the Marlins slugged 4 long balls in a home game was September 19, 2011 vs. Atlanta.

STAT OF THE DAY (MAY 17 at SF)

Christian Yelich tied a club record with 4 runs scored last night in San Francisco, marking the 22nd time a Marlin has scored 4 runs in a game in the franchise’s 22-year history.

With 33 runs scored on the season, Yelich ranks 3rd in the National League behind only Colorado’s Troy Tulowitzki (38) and Charlie Blackmon (34).

His 33 runs scored through the Marlins’ first 43 games put Yelich on pace to score 124 this season. The single-season club record is 125 runs scored by Hanley Ramirez in both 2007 and 2008.

15 Marlins have scored 100 runs in a season, most recently Dan Uggla in 2010.

STAT OF THE DAY (4/19 vs. SEA)

With his 2nd 5-RBI game in 3 games last night, Giancarlo Stanton ran his major league-leading RBI total to 26 through only 17 games. He knocked in 27 runs in his previous 3 Aprils in the big leagues combined (63 games).

Stanton drove in 2 runs on Opening Night, March 31, so technically, he has 24 RBI in April with 10 games remaining.

Stanton’s career high for RBI in a month is 30, set in May of 2012.

The major league record for RBI through the end of April (including any games that may have been played in March) is 36, set by Juan Gonzalez of the Rangers in 1998 and matched by Mark McGwire of the Cardinals in 1998.

The major league record for RBI solely in the month of April (not counting games played in March) is 35 by Gonzalez in ’98. The NL mark of 32 April RBI is shared by Barry Bonds with the Giants in 1996, McGwire in ’98 and Albert Pujols with the Cardinals in 2006.

The Marlins club record for RBI in April (and also through the end of April) is 30, set by Moises Alou in 1997.

The club high for RBI in any single month is 33, established by Hanley Ramirez in June of 2009.

In case you’re wondering, Giancarlo’s got a long way to go to run down the modern (post 1900) big league high for RBI in any calendar month. Yankees Hall of Famer Joe DiMaggio knocked in 53 runs in August of 1939. The modern NL record for RBI in a month is 47, set by New York Giants Hall of Famer Mel Ott in June of 1929.

And, as I Tweeted last night, with 26 RBI through only 17 games, Stanton is already 30 percent of the way to his full-season career high in RBI of 87, posted in 2011.
