As far as teams Cabrera and Bryant victimized multiple times, Cabrera was able to go deep off of the Indians three times. However, two were in the same game. Bryant homered twice off of the Braves (in the same game), not to mention the Phillies and Brewers. Since the last study involved more home runs, Abreu and Frazier got more teams more than once.

Here are the overall 2nd half totals for Cabrera and Bryant when it comes to both HRD and DPA.

Home Run Decimal (HRD)

Melky Cabrera (8 home runs)

8.0601

Kris Bryant (14 home runs)

14.5209

Decimal Power Average (DPA)

Melky Cabrera

1.0075

Kris Bryant

1.0372

For both HRD and DPA, Bryant got the better of Cabrera. Obviously, in HRD’s case, Bryant was going to due to the fact he hit six more home runs. Bryant also scored three hundredths of a percent better than Cabrera in the DPA scenario. In other words, one went heavily to Bryant and the other by a hair.
