Jose Bautista ties Blue Jays record with 47th homer

Sep 15, 2010, 7:30 PM EDT

Jose Bautista delivered a solo shot off the Orioles’ Brad Bergesen in the first inning Wednesday night to tie the Blue Jays franchise record with his 47th homer.
The 29-year-old Bautista matched George Bell’s team record from the rabbit-ball 1987 season. He had been tied with Jose Canseco’s 1998 season for second place on the franchise list. In all, the Jays have had nine 40-homer seasons, three of them belonging to Carlos Delgado.
As mentioned in this spot a few weeks ago, Bautista has a chance this year to become the first player ever to bat under .260 and slug at least .600. He entered Wednesday’s game with a .260 average and a .607 slugging percentage.
