Crisis on Infinite Earths - Brewers 8, Phillies 5

Who's the bust now, bitches? - USA TODAY Sports

The Phillies lost to Milwaukee behind a rather plebian performance by Cole Hamels and holy shit guys Dom Brown is for real.

Preface: I did not watch this game. I did not listen to this game. I got home from work about half an hour ago. And I don't even care about the score, because this year is all about Dom Brown, who, frankly, is awesome.

I told yas so.

Hitting a three-run bomb in the first, and a second solo shot in the sixth, Brown now leads the National League in homeruns. Read that again. He LEADS THE NATIONAL LEAGUE IN HOMERUNS.

HE LEADS THE NATIONAL LEAGUE IN HOMERUNS!!!!!!!!!!!

And a month ago he was a bust who should have been traded. At the risk of spoiling an upcoming piece:

"Dear Haters: Fuck off. Love Dom."

THe rest of the game sucked, by all accounts. Cole Hamels, got knocked around, although there was some BABIPpery bloopery boo going on. The bullpen held it together well enough, with solid looking outings by Justin De Fratus and Cutesy Stutesy, but the offensive outburst wasn't enough to overcome Hamels' early struggles.

Also, Ryan Howard bunted. It didn't work, but he tried. Yay Ryan. I believe that is his first career bunt attempt.

Fangraph of Domonation!

The Phillies drop to 26-28, two games under .500. Tomorrow they try to even the series against Seligland by sending Tyler Cloyd to the hill against Wily Peralta. Is that pronounced "willy" or "wiley" (ie crafty). What is it with guys named Peralta anhd spellinhg theihr namehs wronhg?

Since I didn't watch this game, I mayhaps perchance might have possibly missed a detail or two. Feel free to embellish in the comments.
