Domonic Brown became the 27th visiting player to hit a ball into McCovey Cove Monday night in San Francisco (although, not sure how they keep records, as it did bounce in on the concrete walkway just in front of the water).
Here it is, in all it’s glory. And check out the flags blowing in.

In next week’s episode of Phillies Nation TV, Ian Riccaboni sits down with the beloved Marc Summers of Double Dare and Unwrapped fame. Marc has an interesting connection to Philly and here’s a segment they filmed to find out, in fact, “How ‘Philly’ is Marc Summers?”.
Jesse Biddle had one of those night’s you can’t explain. On Monday in Harrisburg, Biddle fanned 16 and had a perfect game into the seventh inning. His final pitch count was just 104. Ridiculous.
Here are all 16 K’s, plus his two doubles for good measure. (Courtesy The Trentonian)

Ben Revere looked like a man on a mission last night. With a pair of highlight reel catches, Revere pulled out all the stops behind Cliff Lee. Before the game, he dedicated his play to the victims of the Boston tragedy, including a taping a simple message on his glove: Pray for Boston.
For the benefit of those who missed it, here is video of Revere’s catch from last night, courtesy of MLB.com. Two of my favorite things in the video: how stunned the doubled-up Jay Bruce is and how stunned the fans in Cincinnati were! The Reds ended up getting the last laugh, winning 4-2 late, but Revere’s catch will show up on highlight reels for quite a while.
Living in DC at the time, I remember the day vividly. I had plans to go to the game that night, when I heard the news that Harry collapsed in the broadcast booth. He died shortly after. I still went to the game, not knowing what to except. The walk up to the park certainly felt different from other days. Fellow fans were wearing make-shift memorials on their shirts, many were crying, but all had empty looks on their faces, undoubtedly matching the emptiness that now exists in our hearts and ears.
But as sad as that day was, it’s hard not to remember Harry Kalas without a smile on your face. If Harry wasn’t providing the good times himself, he was usually part of it in some way – bantering with Whitey, calling a great moment in Phillies history, or simply his baritone voice in the background as you went about your evening. His greatness will live on forever.
Please enjoy some memories from our wonderful friend below and visit our Harry Kalas tribute page with many more.
