With his smash to right, Bour pulled even with Marcell Ozuna for the club lead with 18 home runs. The left-handed hitting first baseman has 48 RBIs and continues to make a claim that he is All-Star worthy.
Bour has been especially effective pulling the ball. Of his 61 hits, 55 have been pulled. Per Statcast™, his 93.1-mph exit velocity on balls to the pull side is tied second most in the Majors among left-handed hitters with Eric Hosmer of the Royals. Texas’ Joey Gallo tops the chart at 93.9 mph.
Bour now has three career grand slams, with his last coming on June 24, 2016, against the Cubs.
