There's been a lot of bad news for the Philadelphia Phillies lately. They got waxed by the Los Angeles Dodgers and then dropped the first game of their series against the San Diego Padres. Odubel Herrera is embroiled in a domestic violence investigation and Andrew McCutchen is out for the year with a torn ACL. But the front office went out and acquired Jay Bruce to help with those two outfield losses, and the move is ALREADY paying dividends in a big way.
Goodbye! That's the ninth granny of his career to fully break the game open. It was also his second homer of the night after he went oppo earlier in the game.
I have a feeling Philly is gonna like this guy (at least for a few more days).
