Ryan Howard homers at PNC

Today Ryan Howard hit his fifth home run of the season, a majestic drive to dead center field, and also his fifth home run in the month of April, which ties his career high for home runs in April, set in 2006, when he went on to hit a club record 58 home runs. The home run was his first career home run against the Pittsburgh Pirates, and his first career home run at PNC Park. PNC Park is the 20th ballpark Howard has homered in. He has now homered in every National League ballpark, except for Nationals Park, which he has not yet played in.

The National League record for ballparks with a home run is 39, by Mike Piazza, and the Major League record is 45, set by Sammy Sosa.
