After a shaky start to the regular season, the Philadelphia Phillies are slowly working their way back to having a .500 record after another impressive win over the Boston Red Sox on Wednesday. For a team that has been dealing with too many injuries, the Phillies have had to overcome more than they would have liked to over the first two months of the regular season, but one player is beginning to shine and take advantage of extra playing time–Domonic Brown.
The outfielder came up big for the Phllies once again on Wednesday as he blasted two home runs in the team’s 4-3 win over the Red Sox. Not only has Brown recorded 13 home runs on the season, but he’s managed to hit four home runs over his last three games–which is impressive for any player in the big leagues.
Nobody really knew what to expect from Philadelphia heading into the 2013 season considering how many veterans they had in their starting lineup who seemed to only have a few good years left in them. There’s still plenty of time left in the regular season before anyone should hit the panic button, but the Phillies have to be pleased with the recent progress they’ve been making over the last couple of weeks.
If Brown can continue to play at a high level, there’s no reason why Philadelphia shouldn’t be able to bounce back and compete for the NL East title during the 2013 season.
