Luke Scott, King of Eutaw Street

Tell friends
Luke Scott card

Luke Scott has tied Rafael Palmeiro for the most Eutaw Street home runs in Camden Yards history with five.

Scott's 426-foot blast off Josh Beckett in the fourth inning on Wednesday was his longest Eutaw Street homer, beating his previous best of 420 feet against the Tiger's Freddy Dolsi on July 19, 2008. In an interview after Wednesday's game, Scott estimated that his longest Eutaw Street homer was against Fausto Carmona. That shot, on Sept. 8, 2008, was actually his third-longest at 415 feet.

It took both Palmeiro and Scott four seasons to tally five Eutaw Street homers. Palmeiro is the only player to hit two in the same game while Scott, having hit the last three Eutaw Street homers, owns the longest consecutive streak.

Scott's Eutaw Street homers have traveled a combined distance of 2,067 feet. Palmeiro's Eutaw Street homers traveled a combined distance of 2,034 feet.

No player hit a Eutaw Street home run in 2010. It was only the second season since Camden Yards opened in 1992 when that happened. The other was 1993.
