When in doubt, go with the greats. This wasn't much of a day for big home runs, so we'll choose Derek Jeter's fifth inning blast as the Home Run of the Day. The shot put the Yankees up 2-1 over the Blue Jays, but they would come back and tie it up in the seventh. The Jays would eventually win it on a single in the bottom of the 14th, but Jeter's home run was a big part of the game until then. Albert Pujols also hit a home run early in an extra-inning game, hitting a two-run blast in the first inning of the game against the Brewers. The Cards would go on to win 5-4 in the 11th.

Miguel Cabrera hits big home runs and runs them out slowly. It's just what he does. His seventeenth home run of the year came in the sixth inning off oc Luke Hochevar and put the Tigers ahead 1-0. The Tigers would go on to win, 4-2. The only other slow trot belonged to Ryan Doumit, whose blast took 25.25 seconds to run out.
For the second day in a row, Josh Hamilton's surprising speed around the basepaths puts him on the top of the leaderboard. His first inning shot would give the Rangers a 3-0 lead that they would never let go. Also of note was the trot that belonged to the Cubs' Tyler Colvin, who ran his homer out in 19.88 seconds.
