AJC "A year ago today he was in the midst of a career-worst 0-for-28 slump. He hit .175 in his first 16 games and had one homer in 60 at-bats through 17 games. Then he hit a first-inning, three-run homer against Philadelphia on his 28th birthday, April 23, igniting a 12-month power surge the likes of which only a handful of major leaguers have enjoyed. In 159 games since then, he's hit .277 with 58 home runs and 146 RBIs. And since June 11, he's amassed 47 homers and 120 RBIs in just 117 games, with a 1.013 on base-plus-slugging percentage (OPS). Since June 11, St. Louis slugger Albert Pujols has hit .328 with 36 homers and 88 RBIs in 116 games, with a 1.109 OPS." This year, Pujols leads the league with 10 homers, while Andruw trails in 2nd place with 8 homers.
