No. 4: Kyle Schwarber, 114.1 mph
Schwarber, unsurprisingly, is also fourth on the list of the Phillies' hardest hits in 2023, for a Sept. 16 home run in St. Louis. The 114.1 mph three-run homer off Cardinals pitcher Miles Mikolas was even more of a line drive than his first entry on this list and left the yard in the blink of an eye.
After starting the game with a groundout and flyout, Schwarber came up in the top of the fifth with one out and Brandon Marsh and Johan Rojas on base. He took a 2-2 sinker at the top of the zone and uncorked a bullet over the fence in the right field corner.
The 358-foot shot was Schwarber's 44th long ball of the season and put the Phillies up 4-1 in a game they would go on to win 6-1 over the hapless Cardinals. More importantly, John Kruk has to figure out how he's going to scale the Gateway Arch next time the Phillies are in St. Louis.
No. 3: Kyle Schwarber, 114.3 mph
Oh, look, it's Kyle Schwarber ... again.
This one is for his 114.3 mph moonshot during the first game of a doubleheader on Aug. 8 against the Washington Nationals. The 447-foot Schwarbomb was the Phillies DH's second home run of the game. Both came off Trevor Williams, who was probably glad he didn't have to see the lefty slugger a fourth time.
With two on and two out in the fourth, Schwarber unloaded on a 88.5 mph four-seamer out over the plate and deposited it into the second deck in right field of Citizens Bank Park.
Schwarber's 30th home run of the season broke a 3-3 tie and the Phillies would go on to win the game 8-4, before dropping the second game of the day 5-4.
