It’s how the MLB is nowadays, so perhaps we shouldn’t be surprised that a game be, with no extra innings, ended with the two teams combining for 13 home runs. That’s exactly what the Arizona Diamondbacks did on Monday as they defeated the Philadelphia Phillies 13-8 while the two teams set a record for the most total homers in the history of baseball.
The Diamondbacks hit three homers in a row at one point and knocked eight total between them. It started quickly, with Jarrod Dyson, Ketel Marte, and David Peralta giving the Diamondbacks the early edge with their dingers. With the win, Arizona are now 35-32, yet they are still ten off the pace of the Dodgers in the NL West. The Phillies are now in a tie with the Braves in the NL East after they lost and Atlanta won.
