BLUM CRAZY: Knocked two homers in the first game of a doubleheader April 13 at Chicago (NL) - the first, from the left side off Kerry Wood to lead off the game followed up with a solo shot, this time from the right side in the ninth inning off Cliff Bartosh...it was his fourth career multi-homer game (first since May 4, 2004 at Texas)...also the first time in his career he led off a game with a home run, the 50th leadoff homer in franchise history, and the third time he had homered from both sides of the plate in the same game (last May 4, 2004 at Texas).
