Loney Off To Hot Start At Home

James Loney has been an extra-base hit machine at home so far this season

James Loney drove in a run last night, his fifth straight game with an RBI, tied for the longest streak of his career.  All five of those games were at home, a place Loney as struggled in his career.  Coming into this season, Loney hit .269/.333/.376 with 12 home runs at home, compared to .320/.375/.524 with 33 home runs on the road.

This year, thanks in large part to a .541 batting average on balls in play, Loney is hitting .489/.531/.733 at home.  However, Loney is also driving the ball, and already has seven extra-base hits in just 12 home games this season.  Last season, Loney didn't get his seventh extra-base hit at Dodger Stadium until June 18:

Through 6/26/09 35 147 7 .242/.299/.303
2010 12 49 7 .489/.531/.733

Loney already has more home runs at Dodger Stadium this season (two) than last season (one).  Will he keep it up?  I don't know, but it has sure been a fun ride so far.
