    Stat oddity - Leadoff unearned HR

    Just saw this on BBTN:

    On pitch #2 of the Brewers game today, Rickie Weeks hit a HR, that was an unearned run.

    On pitch 1, he popped up and Gold Glover Adrian Gonzalez dropped it in foul territory. Quite an interesting scenario. Corey Hart then homered in the next AB (not a part of the oddity, just adding to it).

    I don't see anything odd about it. That defines an unearned run to a T

    First time in 32 years makes it odd. How often have you seen a leadoff HR not be earned, let alone on the second pitch of the game? That would be an unbeatable record, or stat oddity to a T.
