When Ron Kittle was traded from the White Sox to the Yankees last
week, he % said, ''In Chicago they said I wasn't a consistent power
hitter. Who is a consistent power hitter?'' Kittle's point is well
taken. Last season 13 players hit 30 or more homers, but only one,
Carlton Fisk, hit 4 or more in each month. This season only three
players with at least 20 homers, Dave Parker, Glenn Davis and Jose
Canseco, have hit 4 or more in each month.
Here is the month-by-month breakdown of the top five home run
hitters in each league through July:
National League April May June July Total
Dave Parker, Reds 5 6 4 8 23
Glenn Davis, Astros 4 4 8 7 23
Mike Schmidt, Phillies 5 3 6 8 22
Franklin Stubbs, Dodgers 4 2 9 4 19
Mike Marshall, Dodgers 6 7 4 1 18
American League April May June July Total
Jesse Barfield, Blue Jays 2 9 8 7 26
Jose Canseco, A's 5 10 4 4 23
