Still not getting over that much offense

MLB: Philadelphia Phillies at Milwaukee Brewers Benny Sieu-USA TODAY Sports

Still hard to believe that the Phillies hit six home runs yesterday. It was the second time this season hitting six home runs in a game, the first time coming in June when they beat Cincinnati, 17-3.

What strikes me as crazy is that the Holy Trinity of the Golden Age - Ryan Howard, Chase Utley and Jimmy Rollins - never had a game where they did it. The closest they ever came was in 2004, in a game against Colorado. Utley hit one and Rollins hit one, but Howard was not in the lineup. Jim Thome was, hitting two that night. You know who else hit two? Randy Wolf. Crazy, right?
