Cliff Corcoran: Jamie Moyer's home runs allowed, by the numbers

Jamie Moyer, who takes the hill for the Phillies tonight against the Indians, is one home run shy of tying Robin Roberts' all-time record for most home runs allowed by a pitcher. Roberts, the Phillies great and Hall of Famer who passed away in early May, has sat atop the all-time list since 1957. He pitched nine more years after claiming the record, allowing 217 more home runs to ultimately set the record at 505. Moyer took over the active lead from David Wells in 2004 and enters tonight's game having allowed 504 home runs. The following is a look at the home runs Moyer has allowed. (Hat tip to Baseball-Reference's Home Run Log for much of the below.)
