Real life got in the way of the Tater Trot Tracker this weekend, so I’m a few days behind. Those trots will be updated here soon enough. Meanwhile, don’t forget to to follow @TaterTrotTrkr on Twitter for more up-to-the-minute trot times.
Now let’s get to the trots.
Home Run of the Day: Luis Valbuena #2, Houston Astros – 23.38 seconds [video]
A two-homer day from the Astros’ third-baseman. The second blast of the night broke a 5-5 tie in the eighth and helped lead Houston to victory.
In the Chicago-Pittsburgh tilt, super-stud prospect Kris Bryant made his first trip around the bases after taking third on a throw home and then scoring on an error by the catcher. The “trot” clocked in at 19.78 seconds.
Slowest Trot: Joey Votto, Cincinnati Reds – 23.6 seconds [video]
Monday’s 13 home runs didn’t have much of a spread in trot times, with Votto drawing the short straw as the night’s slowest trot.
Quickest Trot: Starling Marte, Pittsburgh Pirates – 20.34 seconds [video]
The quickest official trot of the night couldn’t even break the 20-second barrier.
