Jim Thome Has Monster Game For Phillies Against Twins
Jim Thome had a monster came against the Minnesota Twins–who happen to be his former team–on Wednesday as the Philadelphia Phillies ended their three-game losing streak with a 9-8 win. Thome went 2 for 4 during the game with two runs and four RBIs, but it was his two-run home run in the top of the fourth inning that may have been the most impressive stat of the game considering he’s 41-years-old.
Obviously, this year has been anything but pleasant for a Phillies team that has been missing key players all season due to serious injuries–so it was nice to see some offense from Thome since he hasn’t been used much to begin with for most of the season. On the bright side–Chase Utley could return to the lineup as early as the first week in July as the second baseman started his rehab assignment this week with Class A Clearwater.
