Phillies outfielder Domonic Brown ended April on a sour note, hitting just .233 with three home runs in 97 trips to the plate. With two home runs in tonight’s loss to the Brewers, Brown moved into third place in the Major League leaderboard for home runs on the season with 15 as he wraps up a scorching hot month of May. It is his second multi-homer game in his last three games, has hit a homer in four out of his last five games, and is the defending National League Player of the Week. You’ll be hard-pressed to find a player who is seeing the baseball better than Dom Brown right now.
Brown also wraps up the month of May without having drawn a single walk, unintentional or otherwise, making him the first player in baseball history to hit at least ten home runs without drawing a walk in a single month.
#Phillies Domonic Brown has 10 HR, no BB in May. If he goes without a walk tonight, he’d be first player with 10 HR, 0 BB in calendar month
