Domonic Brown continues homer parade as Phillies hit .500 mark

Domonic Brown continued to bash on Wednesday afternoon, launching a two-run home run in the seventh inning as the Phillies completed a three-game sweep of the Miami Marlins with a 6-1 victory at Citizens Bank Park.

The win evened the Phillies record for the first time since April 14. 

The homer for Brown was his 18th of the season, putting him two behind major league leader Chris Davis. The blast was his 10th in the last 12 games.

Cole Hamels collected the win, snapping a six-game winless skid while striking out 11 over seven solid innings. He scattered four hits and walked one.

Brown's homer highlighted a five-run seventh that also saw Ryan Howard hit a two-run triple to center. 

Every starter for the Phillies collected a hit in the win. 

Derek Dietrich collected the Marlins' lone run with a solo home run in the fourth.

The Phillies embark on a ten-game road trip beginning in Milwaukee on Thursday.
