Kyle Schwarber Homers Twice As Phillies Sweep Rockies

Schwarber wasted no time Wednesday hitting a solo HR in the first inning, the 250th of his career. He would leave the yard again in the sixth, a two-run shot scoring Johan Rojas. Schwarber went 2-for-5, scoring twice with three RBIs in the Phillies' 7-6 win.

Fantasy Impact:

Schwarber's breakout game brought his SLG up to .432 on the season, putting him just outside the top 70 in the category this year. The Phillies' DH finished 38th overall last season in SLG at .474 so he is heading in the right direction. Schwarber managers should monitor his SLG as he carries a career .224 BA and his production throughout the season will be tied to extra-base hits.
