Despite some recent setbacks, the Phils came out swinging last night against the Rays, backing a struggling (and, yes, over the hill, we get it!) Jamie Moyer with some potent offense.
After a homer a piece from Mayberry and Utley, the Phils hit 100 homers on the season. Reaching the benchmark at just 68 games played, it’s the fastest the Fightens have made it to the centennial.
With last season seeing the Phils get to 100 at 70 games — that being the franchise’s record at the time — the new pace could be exciting news for the remainder of the season.
I think the Phils did something unexpected at the end of last season after they set the record … what was it? Oh, right, winning the World Series.
