The only other active player with that many multi-homer games without a loss on his ledger is Adam Lind, whose teams are 11–0 when he homers more than once, per the Elias Sports Bureau.

Jedd Gyorko is swinging a pretty hot bat. Against the San Diego Padres, his former team, he is 13-for-21 with six home runs. That hot streak prompted manager Mike Matheny to put Gyorko in the leadoff spot for Thursday night's game. He talks about Gyorko's recent play and how he's mixing and matching atop the lineup with Matt Carpenter out.
