5. Philadelphia Phillies outfielder and TFA alum Adam Haseley knocked in the first MLB homer of his career in a 7-6 win over the Los Angeles Dodgers on Thursday, July 18. In the bottom of the second inning and with his Phillies down 2-1, Haseley made hard contact with a fastball that stayed high in the strike zone — knotting the game up at 2-2 before the Phillies went on to get the win. The following night in a 6-1 win over the Pittsburgh Pirates, Haseley hit his second home run in two games and a RBI double.
