Philadelphia Phillies starting pitcher Chad Billingsley, left, rounds the bases past New York Mets shortstop Ruben Tejada after Billingsley's home run off starting pitcher Bartolo Colon.

Chad Billingsley increased his career home run total by 50 percent with one swing of the bat Sunday afternoon at Citizens Bank Park.

Ok, that was a complete troll stat. After all, Billinglsey, a pitcher, only had two career homers before sneaking a ball into the netting of the left field foul pole in the bottom of the third inning off the Mets' Bartolo Colon. 

It was a nice moment for a guy who's making a comeback to the league after injuries forced him out of it for two years, and a forgettable moment for Mr. Colon. Which is fine, he's got plenty of those:

The rest of the afternoon did not go as well for Billinglsey: 

The Mets had the last laugh, winning 7-4 and taking two out of three games in the weekend series.
