After a double off the wall on Wednesday, he broke through with his first and second home runs of the season on Thursday night.  Overall, De La Cruz had two runs scored and three RBI’s in the win. It marked the third multi-homer game of his career. It was also the first time a R-Phils hit a home run in back-to-back at-bats since Nick Warddid it on Aug. 10, 2023 at New Hampshire.
