Domonic Brown has just hit his 14th home run since May 1. On the season, he has 17, which is best in the National League and tied for second in all of baseball.

What has gotten into Brown? Coming into this season, he had just 12 career home runs. Now, his home-run tear is turning him into the face of the Philadelphia Phillies. At just 25 years old, Brown has unlimited potential. He has incredible power and has shown how hot he can get. 

At this pace, he will finish the season with 47 home runs, according to ESPN.com. Those numbers will make him the most popular Phillie for years to come.

Let's take a look at some of the biggest bombs from Brown's remarkable run.

Brown earns himself a Philly cheesesteak after this blast:

Brown probably won't hit another 12 home runs in June—although he already has two. Still, his power surge has to be a sight for sore eyes for Philly fans. The Phillies are 28-30 and will need all the help they can get from Brown to make the playoffs.

But his star-making month bodes well for the Phillies' future—the more Brown can hit it out of the park, the better chance the Phillies have of winning.
