I guess good work by Corey Seager and Giancarlo Stanton.

Welcome to the Ding Dong Challenge, a game were we try and correctly predict who will hit the most home runs in a given week, keep score throughout the entire season, and win a free, awesome t-shirt.

Week 2 scorecard

Name Week 2 Total Elite Everyone Else 1 Everyone Else 2 Total Dongs
Name Week 2 Total Elite Everyone Else 1 Everyone Else 2 Total Dongs
Garrett 2 Nelson Cruz (0) Corey Seager (2) Randy Arozarena (0) 9
Heath 2 Mike Trout (1) Trey Mancini (1) Pete Alonso (0) 5
Andres 2 J.D. Martinez (0) Yordan Alvarez (0) Giancarlo Stanton (2) 2
Pete 1 J.D. Martinez (0) Juan Soto (0) Nate Lowe (1) 5
Feslen 1 Mike Trout (1) Yordan Alvarez (0) Omar Navarez (0) 3
Mark 0 J.D. Martinez (0) Juan Soto (0) Pete Alonso (0) 2

A real tough week for everyone as no one really stood out. Two dingers from Corey Seager and Giancarlo Stanton is about all you can celebrate. No dingers for Just Dingers Martinez was SOUL crushing for many of us last week.

Dong leaders last week: Willson Contreras knocked four dingers last week.

Onto Week 3!
