MLB: Jake Cronenworth achieves second field HR of the year, equals mark of son of legend

Stat of the day: batting and running. Stop me if you’ve heard this before: Jake Cronenworth, off the Colorado Rockies, he hit a deep drive that bounced wildly off the wall and away from right fielder Charlie Blackmon, resulting in an inside-the-park home run.

It happened Tuesday night in Denver Coors Field, and it also happened on May 19 in San Diego (also vs. Rockies). Cronenworth became the third batter for the San Diego Padres to record multiple home runs inside the park in the same season, joining Gene Richards in 1982 and Tony Gwynn Jr. in 2010. Neither did it against the same team:

It was Cronenworth’s second in-park home run of the season, both of which came against the Rockies themselves and both in awkward carom for Rockies right fielder Charlie Blackmon.

Cronenworth became the third Father to hit multiple home runs inside the parks in the same season, joining Tony Gwynn Jr.

I am fond of the King of Sports, especially the Boston Red Sox in MLB and in general all of Mexican baseball. This profession has given me the opportunity to cover major events such as the Caribbean Series, LMB All Star, LMP (uninterrupted since 2009), signings of important players. I had the chance to attend the 2013 World Classic in Arizona, USA, albeit as a fan. Apart from this beautiful sport, I love basketball, where I have also narrated games and even an NBA friendly 10 years ago, but I carry baseball in my veins. Bachelor of Communication Sciences from the Autonomous University of Sinaloa (UAS) , from which I graduated in 2011. I was born in Mazatlán, Sinaloa and started in the world of sports journalism in 2004 in the newspaper El Sol de Mazatlán, where I was a baseball columnist and reporter at the same time. In January 2009 I came to El Debate as a journalist reporter and it was almost six years (in the first stage), until in November 2014 I emigrated to the radio providing my services in Línea Directa-Grupo RSN. My cycle there ended in July 2019 and after a few days, El Debate gave me another opportunity to work and opened the doors for me again. That is how I came to Al Bat, where I have been since 2019 as a web journalist.
