Jose Abreu has more home runs than anybody, and here's the proof:
The White Sox rookie first baseman has been one of the best stories in baseball throughout the season's first month. After crushing this David Price pitch in the sixth inning of Sunday's game, he snapped a nine-homer tie with Albert Pujols for the major league lead in longballs with 10.
Abreu added a whole host of records to his personal record book with this blast, which gave the Sox a 4-1 lead.
Jose Abreu now has 29 RBIs in April, breaking Albert Pujols' rookie record of 27. #WhiteSox— JJ Stankevitz (@JJStankevitz) April 27, 2014
Jose Abreu's 10 HR this month are the most by a #WhiteSox player in April since Paul Konerko hit 11 in 2010.— JJ Stankevitz (@JJStankevitz) April 27, 2014
One more Abreu record: His 29 RBIs are a #WhiteSox record for April, surpassing the 28 Paul Konerko had in 2002.— JJ Stankevitz (@JJStankevitz) April 27, 2014
Not bad for your first month as a major leaguer.
UPDATE: Abreu added a two-run single in the seventh, so make that a major league-leading 31 RBIs. Wow.
