The Giants have a long history of players reaching home run milestones in their colors. Evan Longoria joined the list in the third inning Friday.
Longoria hit a long homer two-thirds of the way up the bleachers in left, giving the Giants a 2-0 lead over the Arizona Diamondbacks. He became the 10th player to hit his 300th homer in a Giants uniform.
Longoria's 300 homers are the most by a third baseman since he debuted in 2008. He hit 261 with the Rays and had 36 in his first two seasons after a trade to the Giants. The blast Friday, which left the bat at 109.1 mph, was his third of the 2020 season.
The Yankees have had 15 players hit their 300th homer in their uniform. The Giants are the second team to reach double-digits. The nine who did it before Longoria are Mel Ott, Johnny Mize, Willie Mays, Willie McCovey, Reggie Smith, Barry Bonds, Moises Alou, Steve Finley and Carlos Beltran.
