On June 27, 2007 Ryan Howard hits his 100th career home run in a 9 – 6 loss to the Reds. The shot against Aaron Harang makes him the fastest player in major league history to hit 100 homers, doing so in his 325th game.
The Dodgers pummel the Diamondbacks, 19 – 1, with only a 9th-inning score preventing them from tying the team mark for most lopsided shutout ever. The 24 hits ties the mark for the team in Los Angeles. They score eight of their runs in the 7th inning. The last hit for L.A. is the first major league homer by Dave Ross, and it comes off Mark Grace, who pitches the 9th inning.
