Nationals' Matt den Dekker belts two-run home run on Friday
|by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer|
|(6/26/15) A late addition to the lineup on Friday, Nationals outfielder Matt den Dekker came through with his first home run of the season, and second of his career, in the 5-2 win over the Phillies.
den Dekker was inserted into the lineup when Denard Span was scratched with back tightness. His two-run home run in the sixth inning came as little significance to the outcome of the game, as the Nationals were already up 3-1 at the time.
Still, it was a nice contribution from den Dekker, who had just one hit all season coming into Friday's game, and that one hit came in the previous game.
"That felt great," den Dekker said, per MLB.com. "I'm glad I could get into the game, help the team out and be part of a win. It's been special watching those starting pitchers go out there and give us the starts they have been giving us. It's carried over into the offense. It gives us a lot of confidence to go out there and play the game."
