Trot Times for July 6, 2013

It was a hot one around the country yesterday, helping lead us to a nice 38-homer day. We can probably expect more of the same today.

Let's get right to the trots!

Home Run of the Day: Josh Hamilton, Los Angeles Angels – 18.93* seconds [video]
Down by four with two outs in the ninth inning, the Angels beat the Red Sox on this walkoff home run from Josh Hamilton in the 11th inning. Hard to complain about that.

Slowest Trot: Alfonso Soriano #1, Chicago Cubs – 25.89* seconds [video]
The big blast from Soriano came on his second home run, when he dropped his bat with quite the flourish.

On Friday, David Ortiz hit his 17th home run of the season. Somewhere along the way, he lost his way around the bases and didn't find his way home for 29.61 seconds. That was nearly 3 seconds slower than Adrian Beltre's 26.69 second trot, which was outlandishly slow on its own.

Quickest Trot: Derek Dietrich, Miami Marlins – 18.58 seconds [video]
A simple, quick trot to take the crown for the day. A bit slow for Dietrich, however.
