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:

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.
