Domonic Brown set a tone at CBP last night, he hit a home run and it could be the start of him finding the swing that brought him to he All Star Game last year. Dom hit a home run that was only his 3rd of the season, but it was a 3-run blast and it helped the Phillies stay in this ballgame against a feisty Mets team.
See the blast on MLB.com right here.
The Mets aren't that bad this year, they seem to have an extra edge to them and only appear to be missing a starting pitcher and a hot bat to have them doing much better.
Of course the Mets and the Phillies have been seesawing back and forth from the bottom of the NL East, but they still aren't terrible. Both teams are still only 4.5 or 3.5 GB out of first despite not playing all too well.
Game 2 of the home series against the Mets went extra innings. These two teams seem very evenly matched and it showed tonight.
The game turned into a 14 inning marathon and the Phils ended up the winners by a 6-5 score. Reid Brignac ended up hitting the game winner and it was the first ever game that Reid started, so it will be a memorable one for him.
