Raffy goes deep
Ten years after his first major league homer, Rafael Belliard went deep against the Mets’ Brian Bohannon for his only HR as a Brave after more than 1,200 AB’s. It came a month shy of his 35th birthday in what would be his next to last season with the local nine.
Too bad he didn’t hit it on May 7, 1991, when he fell just a HR shy of the cycle. Raffy drove in 5 that night vs. the Cardinals and followed that up with 2 doubles and 3 RBI in the finale of a two-game set at Fulco.
