Week 5 Just Enough "Home Runs"

After a week with nothing to report, week 5 provided us with seven home runs that would have only cleared the fence at that park, on that night.  The National League Central continues to host the majority of these types of HRs, adding five more this past week at their ballparks.

Daniel Robertson hit an inside-the-park home run with Francisco Liriano on the mound.

Joey Gallo off Mike Fiers (352 ft)

Josh Harrison off Drew Storen (352 ft)

Andrew McCutchen off Amir Garrett (372 ft)

 Aaron Altherr off Jon Lester (378 ft)

Miguel Montero off Joaquin Benoit (398 ft)

Matt Carpenter off Mike Foltynewicz (411 ft)

Jesus Aguilar off Johnny Barbato (419 ft) video

Wrigley Field has now seen 6 home runs that wouldn't have made it out of nearly all the rest of the parks around the league.  Add in four at Great American Ballpark and that is 10 of the 33 home runs that have made our list.  Yankee Stadium still sits at 5 and hasn't surrendered a cheap home run since the middle of April.

Jake Arrieta (3) and Alex Cobb (2) are the only pitchers to have multiple home runs hit off them thanks to a perfect combination of weather conditions and ballpark.

Jose Altuve has taken advantage of park/weather conditions twice in the last two weeks at Minute Maid Park.
