The Phillies began a three-game series against the San Francisco Giants on Monday night at AT&T Park. The Giants' ballpark is one of a few stadiums that offers hitters an opportunity to hit a home run into a body of water.

Phillies left fielder Domonic Brown took full advantage of that chance.

In the fifth inning, Brown turned on a 90-mph inside fastball and launched a ball into McCovey Cove beyond the right field wall. The ball needed a bounce to get wet, but it was still an impressive poke.
