    Aaron Altherr joins rare company with 3-run homer in 3rd straight game

    Aaron Altherr joined some select company in Phillies' history Wednesday by hitting a three-run home run for the third straight game.

    Altherr is the first Phillie since Mike Schmidt on the final three days of the 1981 season with a three-run homer in three straight games.

    He's the first Phillie since Darren Daulton in 1994 with at least a homer and three RBIs of any kind in three straight games.

    And this is hard to believe, but Altherr is the first Phillie since Rico Brogna in 1998 with three or more RBIs in three straight games. Kinda crazy that guys like Ryan Howard, Chase Utley, Jayson Werth and Pat Burrell never did that. Heck, Nationals teammates Ryan Zimmerman and Daniel Murphy each did in the same week two weeks ago.

    Altherr is red-hot. Wednesday's homer gave him eight extra-base hits in his last eight games.
