Vlad Jr. Follows Up First Home Run With Another 

Post#1 » by RealGM Wiretap » Wed May 15, 2019 11:55 am

Vladimir Guerrero, Jr. homered twice on Tuesday night to become the third-youngest player to hit his first two Major League homers in the same game.

Guerrero received advice from his Hall of Fame father amid his early struggles.

\"He just said like he always told me, \'Don\'t look for home runs. They\'re going to come,\'\" he said of his father through a translator. \"I\'m going to give both balls and the bat to my dad. I\'m going to keep using everything that I used today, except the bat that I really want to give to my dad.\"

Guerrero, 20, homered in the first inning against San Francisco Giants opener Nick Vincent (0-2), his first in 14 Major League games.
