It’s June And Kyle Schwarber Is Mashing Baseballs

Written by Tony Ghaul

Phillies slugger Kyle Schwarber has said repeatedly there is no reason why he gets hot in June. It seems to happen every season, when the calendar flips to June.

Schwarber hit a leadoff homer in the first of the Philadelphia Phillies 1-0 victory over the visiting Detroit Tigers on Tuesday.

Schwarber now has three home runs in six games this month and 31 homers in 60 June games dating to the 2021 season.

Last year, in his first season with the Phillies, Schwarber hit 12 home runs in 27 games during the month of June.

“I’m feeling better every single day,” Schwarber said in a postgame interview on NBC Sports Philadelphia. “I’m doing all I can to keep up with the work in the cage. That sets me up to compete.”

Schwarber now has 16 homers and 34 RBIs, but is batting .173 on the season. He is 6-for-24 (.250) this month.

The Phillies have a disappointing record of 29-32 to start the season, but with Schwarber heating up, they could make up some serious ground with “Mr. June”, swinging his mighty bat.
