June 8, 1989

Steve Jeltz becomes the first player in the 106-year history of the franchise to homer from both sides of the plate when his two round-trippers help the Phillies overcome a 10-0 first-inning deficit to beat the Pirates at Veterans Stadium, 15-11. The switch-hitting shortstop will hit only five home runs during his entire big league career, which includes 1,749 at-bats.
