Washington Nationals outfielder Kyle Schwarber cranked two home runs on Monday night to give him 15 homers over his last 17 games, and he didn’t wait long to mash another tater on Tuesday night.
Schwarber crushed the first pitch thrown by Tampa Bay Rays starter Rich Hill for a homer over the right field wall.
How do you even describe how hot @kschwarb12 is right now?

So, Schwarber now has 16 homers over his last 18 games. He also has 12 homers over his last 10 games, tying him with Albert Belle (1995) for the most homers in a 10-game span since at least 1901 (so, we’re just going to say tied for the most ever).

Schwarber has 25 homers on the season, tied for third in the majors.
Entering the day on June 12, there were 66 MLB players with more HR this season than Kyle Schwarber.
17 days later, that number has dwindled to 2.

It’s been an unbelievable run for Schwarber, and he doesn’t seem to be slowing down.
