Slow Down, 10-Speed

Jayson Werth gots nuts Friday against the JaysJayson Werth absolutely abused the baseball Friday.

The Philadelphia Phillies outfielder homered in his first three at-bats against the Toronto Blue Jays Friday, tying a club record with eight RBIs in a single game.

For starters, he connected on a 0-1 pitch off lefty starter David Purcey in the second inning for a three-run homer to right field. As if that wasn't enough run support, Werth nailed a 425-foot grand slam to right the very next inning. He topped off his incredible performance with a solo shot to left-center in the fifth off reliever Jesse Litsch.

"Anything can happen on any given day, I guess," Werth shrugged. "This game is crazy. It's not like I was trying to do anything like that. It just happened. I don't know what else to say. It's just crazy."
Werth set career highs for home runs and RBIs, becoming the 18th player in Phillies history to hit three bombs in a game.

So that's how you beat the Blue Jays: have a dude hit three dongs and drive in 8 runs.
