Starter Chad Billingsley gave the Phillies a 1-0 lead in the bottom of the third inning with a solo home run to left field off of Mets starter Bartolo Colon. It’s his third career home run and his first since June 5, 2011. He’s the fourth Phillie to homer during the regular season dating back to 2008, joining Cole Hamels, Cliff Lee, and… Chan Ho Park. You can, of course, add Joe Blanton when he homered in Game 4 of the 2008 World Series.
Given Billingsley’s homer and the fact that the DH debate is back in full force, now is a good time to link to Michael Baumann’s terrific piece on the DH.
