Ladies and gentlemen, your big league home runs leader: Chase Utley.
Sunday night against Mike Pelfrey and the New York Mets, the Philadelphia Phillies stud second baseman smoked a two-out solo shot in the first to give his club a one-run lead before nailing a three-run homer to right in the fifth. With no one out in the seventh, he singled on a soft fly in Ryan Church's direction, enjoying a 3-3 evening.
Utley leads not only the National League, but all of baseball with 8 home runs. Chicago Cubs first baseman Derrek Lee is close behind with seven, and 7 guys are on their tails tied with six.

Also, I'm going to attempt to make this picture about Sunday's game, even though it was snapped five days prior. In the ninth inning against the Houston Astros, Geoff Jenkins scored the winning run on a Pedro Feliz base hit. It looks like Pat Burrell seriously needed a hug. I think I see tears.
As it turns out, Feliz also drove in the go-ahead run during Sunday's game with a solo to right in the seventh.
Update: Utley homered for the fifth straight game Monday night during Philly's 9-5 win over the Colorado Rockies. Double digits, baby.
