Seattle Mariners outfielder Nelson Cruz hit yet another home run in Tuesday’s 10-4 win over the Colorado Rockies, becoming just the fifth player in MLB history to homer in five straight games twice in the same season, per the Elias Sports Bureau (via ESPN Stats & Info).

The 35-year-old Cruz, who hit a solo blast off of Rockies reliever Scott Oberg in the seventh inning, joins an impressive list comprised of Chase Utley (2008), Barry Bonds (2001), Frank Thomas (1994) and Harmon Killebrew (1970).

In addition to hitting exactly one homer in each of his last five games, Cruz has 10 over his last 15 contests, as his hot streak predates the home run streak.

He previously homered in five straight games from April 11 to 15, with the streak accounting for six of his 10 home runs during the season’s first month.

Cruz continued the impressive slugging into May, but he then managed just one home run between May 28 and the end of June.

Although he’s done nothing to shed his reputation for streakiness, Cruz has still solidified himself as one of the top right-handed sluggers in baseball, posting a .323/.387/.597 batting line through 106 games, with 31 home runs and 67 RBI.

Making his stats even more impressive, he’s done all this while playing his home games at Safeco Field, which has long been one of MLB’s toughest stadiums for right-handed batters.
