Brandon Phillips is no stranger to excellent plays with the glove, but his double play against the Brewers last night was pretty ridiculous.
Phillips also pitched in at the plate, as he went 2-for-4 with a home run and two RBI. His solo shot off Mike Gonzalez in the bottom of the seventh ended up being the difference in Reds’ 4-3 victory.
Hitting cleanup behind on-base machines Shin-Soo Choo and Joey Votto, Phillips currently leads the National League with 31 RBI. The 31-year-old has never driven in more than 98 runs in a season, but he’s on pace to obliterate that total this year.
