Mike Napoli #26
Mike Napoli crushed his 27th home run of the season, making it the fifth consecutive game that he has homered, and ties the longest home run streak in the Majors this year with Baltimore Orioles' Chris Davis and New York Mets' Jay Bruce. The five-game homer streak ties Napoli's longest of his career (April 2012, Texas Rangers).
QUOTE: "Kip started the game off pretty nice. It was a bomb. Stuff like that, it definitely sparks you," Napoli said when referring to Jason Kipnis' first-inning home run on Saturday's game, July 30. Interesting quote because what Napoli said was true. He not only homered in the fourth inning of that game, Napoli continued to homer in the next four straight games.
FACT: Kipnis' home run on July 30, 2016, was the 2,000 home run by an Indians batter since Progressive Field opened in 1994.
