You know who hits a lot of solo home runs? Guys who hit a lot of non-solo home runs.
Jay Bruce has 96 solo home runs and 56 home runs with men on base. That is 37% of his home runs with men on base. This year in the NL only 25% of home runs come with men on base. The reason you see a lot of solo shots is because he hits more home runs than just about anyone else in the NL.
