Luke Williams mom and dad were in the stands at the Bank last night for his first big league homer, a two-run shot with two outs in the ninth inning to lift the Phillies over the Atlanta Braves 2-1.
“Pretty incredible,” Williams said. “I’m still trying to figure it all out.”
The walkoff was the second of Williams’ life, with the last one winning a travel ball tournament prior to his senior year of high school.
“I thought that was pretty cool,” he said. “To do it in the big leagues is indescribable.”
