Justin De Fratus catches Domonic Brown's home run with his hat
De Fratus catches Dom Brown HR in his hat
The Phillies just traded Ben Revere to the Blue Jays for two Minor League pitchers but -- from the looks of it -- they're still all set in the outfield.
Two weeks ago, outfielder/position player who pitches Jeff Francoeur hit a walk-off blast for the Phils, his first since 2008.
Then last week, center fielder Odubel Herrera made two circus catches at the Friendly Confines to preserve Cole Hamels' no-hitter.
Now Dom Brown has gotten in on the action. Entering Friday night's game, the 27-year-old right fielder had hit .371 over the previous two weeks with five RBIs, a triple and his first home run of the season. He continued his tear on Friday by belting a dinger out to center field:
And if the Phillies feel like they're a little thin in the outfield after Revere's departure, they can just throw relief pitcher Justin De Fratus out there. That was De Fratus hanging out in the Phils' bullpen and repurposing his hat as a baseball-corralling device.
Oh, and the Phillies beat the Braves, 9-3, and are 11-2 since the All-Star break. Who'd have thunk it?
