Drought ending

Last night Kevin Mench and John Mabry both homered in their respective games. For Mench, it was his first home run since June 11th and only his second since May 9th. Mabry had not homered since the second game of the season although since Mabry is used primarily as a pinch hitter, he has had far less opportunity.

The evening marked the ninth time in baseball history that two Delawareans had homered on the same day. The others:
