Odubel Herrera punctuates the Phillies' back-to-back-to-back homer barrage with a bat flip

In the eighth inning of Sunday's Braves-Phillies game at Citizens Bank Park, things were knotted up at 1 -- until the Phillies decided to emphatically take a stand and unbreak that tie.

Their chosen method of taking the lead was particularly dramatic, considering Cesar Hernandez, Aaron Altherr and Odubel Herrera connected on back-to-back-to-back homers against Arodys Vizcaino. 

Given his knack for flipping his bat after key hits, this next part might not surprise you if you've paid much attention to Herrera's method of play. Yes, he did it again, and with the authority that goes along with being the third part of a homer trifecta:

Let's take a closer look at that flip:

After the game, MLB.com's Todd Zolecki asked Herrera about the flip, to which he replied with a custom rating:

"Ninety, 90 out of 100."

Bat flips are fun. Back-to-back-to-back homers? Also fun. Combining the two, with the noted King of Bat Flips providing the final blow? That's a great way to leave your mark on a game-changing moment, which the Phillies did in their 5-2 win.
