Brad Miller uses his stirrup-sock powers to blast two home runs

Brad Miller hit 10 home runs across 123 games last season. On Tuesday, the Mariners shortstop called upon his fashion powers of stirrup socks, batting glove-free hands and long-flowing locks to bash out two of them. 

Miller broke a scoreless tie in the bottom of the third when he took this offering from Carlos Carrasco and drove it deep into the right-field pavilion area.

Two innings later and with Bruce Chen on the mound, Miller did it again, socking it to almost the exact same spot.

Oddly enough, this isn't a strange occurance for Miller.

Despite having only 18 Major League homers to his name, Miller has four multi-home run games. That ties the shortstop for 13th most in the league over the last two years, putting him alongside players like Adam Jones (62), Nelson Cruz (67) and Chris Davis (79).

There really is something special about those socks.
