Some players have a knack for the dramatic, coming through in the biggest moments. Philadelphia Phillies outfielder Kyle Schwarber is one of those players.
Schwarber added to his impressive list of times where he has homered with his blast during the World Baseball Classic. As pointed out by CodifyBaseball on Twitter, Schwarber has now homered in every major league postseason series as well as the WBC.
Philadelphia Phillies hope for more big moments from Kyle Schwarber
He has certainly demonstrated that power during his time in the majors. His next regular season homer will be his 200th as he fell just shy of that plateau despite leading the National League with 46 home runs in 2022. He belted six more homers in the postseason last year, including three in the World Series as the Phillies pushed Houston to six games.
Those homers have also come in bunches when he has been healthy. Schwarber has three seasons where he has hit at least 30 homers in a season, making him a key part of the Phillies’ lineup going forward. That is especially the case as they look to make another run to the postseason with an eye on their first title since 2008.
Likewise, the Phillies are hoping that Schwarber will add to his total in the coming year. It is going to be a difficult road, especially with the Mets and Braves in the same division. However, they did prove that a team can take a run at a title from any seed in the postseason. Schwarber is going to be a major part of the Phillies’ success this season, and if they advance into October.
Kyle Schwarber has a knack for rising to the occasion. The Philadelphia Phillies slugger keeps belting homers in pressure filled games.
