Brignac's walk-off to snap scoreless tie a rarity

PHILADELPHIA -- Phillies infielder Reid Brignac picked up his second walk-off hit of the season Wednesday, when he hit a three-run home run in the ninth inning in a 3-0 victory over the Padres.

Elias Sports Bureau said Brignac is the first Phillies player to snap a scoreless tie with a walk-off home run in nearly 42 years. Willie Montanez did it July 28, 1972, when he hit a two-run home run against the Cubs' Milt Pappas in a 2-0 victory at Veterans Stadium.
