Domonic Brown to Make Phillies Debut


Domonic Brown will make his Phillies debut tonight as the Phillies ride their 6 game winning streak into another matchup against the Diamondbacks.

Brown's arrival is sort of overdue, and the only reason he was called up now is due to an injury to Shane Victorino. Victorino was placed on the 15 day DL today with a strained oblique, and it opens the door for Domonic Brown to make his debut. Jayson Werth will slide over to center field, and Domonic Brown will play his familiar position of right field. Domonic Brown is due to bat 6th in the order tonight.

As much as I rip Victorino, it is never good when both Victorino and Jimmy Rollins are not in the lineup. J. Roll is only expected to miss tonight's game and maybe tomorrows, but is still is tough without the 2 fastest players on the team, especially when you are already missing Chase Utley.

It will be exciting to check out Domonic Brown tonight, and hopefully he has a solid debut. Tonight's matchup is also a matchup of 2 pitchers who have thrown no hitters this season. Roy Halladay threw a perfect game earlier in the year, and Diamondbacks pitcher Edwin Jackson threw a no hitter against the Rays.

The Phillies need to keep this winning streak going, especially being at home, and playing against a bad Diamondbacks team. They are still 3.5 games back in the NL East of the first place Braves.

Brown 2 for 3 so far with a double off the top of the wall, and a single, 1 RBI and 2 runs scored. Halladay going into the 8th with a shutout.

What can Brown do for you...?
Well, may take awhile to find out for sure, but what a helluva start! And I even liked his valiant attempt to save Doc's shutout, although it resulted in a ball to the wall. Sarge criticized the play as an example of how much Dom needs to learn on D, and suggested that had he played it on one hop, he might have saved the shut out without taking the risk. But in that situation, with that kind of lead, I liked his showing hustle in an obvious attempt to support his pitcher.
