Colby Rasmus' HR in first inning Sunday is 78th to reach Eutaw Street

Toronto Blue Jays center fielder Colby Rasmus has homered in consecutive games. The one Saturday night against Tommy Hunter put the game into extra innings.

And his blast in the first inning Sunday also had some significance. Rasmus' homer against Orioles right-hander Ubaldo Jimenez reached Eutaw Street, beyond the right-field flag court.

It's the 78th to land there in Camden Yards history and the first this season. Of those 78 homers, 47 have been hit by opponents and four by Blue Jays. This was Rasmus' first Eutaw Street homer.

The last Blue Jays player to do it was Eric Thames on April 24, 2012.
