Batting eighth for the first time this year, Miguel Montero homered in the bottom of the eighth to break a 2-2 tie in the Diamondbacks' 3-2 win over the Phillies on Friday.

Montero opened the year in the cleanup spot, though the sixth spot has always made the most sense for him. It was his .198 average that got him dropped all of the way to eighth tonight. Of course, he's far better than that, and he'll probably be a solid mixed-league catcher the rest of the way.
