Homers Newsbeat

The Phillies tied a homer record that hasn’t been seen in 15 years

After years of bad baseball and general futility, the Philadelphia Phillies are on the rise. They have the youngest team in the majors, excellent starting pitching, and a lineup full of power threats. On Thursday night in Cincinnati, the Phillies delivered on those power threats with a historic outburst of home runs that gave the Phillies the win, and their biggest National League East lead of the season.

The hot and humid Cincinnati weather was perfect for hitting home runs. Rhys Hoskins got it started in the first with a two-out solo shot, and was followed by Carlos Santana hitting the only multi-run homer of the night, a two-run jack to right field. Nick Williams hit his first homer of the night in the third inning, and Maikel Franco hit his first in the fifth inning. Then everyone but Santana did it all again. Hoskins hit his second dinger of the night in the sixth inning, Franco got his second in the seventh inning, and Williams put a button on it with his homer in the ninth.

It’s a rare thing for three players to hit two homers each in the same game. So rare that it hasn’t been done in 15 years, since the Boston Red Sox did it in 2003.
