The Philadelphia Phillies and Atlanta Braves are amid a highly competitive series.
On Monday, the two sides began the four-game series with a doubleheader.
That saw the Braves take game one with the Phillies winning game two.
But there were plenty of fireworks in both games as a combined 30 runs were scored.
One player who continued his dominant run is Braves first baseman Matt Olson.
Not many players in baseball are having a more dominant season at the plate than Olson.
He hit his 49th and 50th home runs of the year in the second game of Monday’s doubleheader.
That is a career-high for Olson and a milestone worth celebrating.
The Braves players wanted to get that ball back for Olson, and Phillies outfielder Kyle Schwarber was there to help.
He got Olson’s 50th homer ball from a fan in exchange for another ball from the game.
According to Bally Sports South, you can see Schwarber making the exchange with the fan.

Even though these two teams are rivals this is a cool sign of respect from Schwarber.
Olson may only hit 50 home runs once in his career so that is a ball worth keeping.
The numbers that Olson has put up this season have been incredible.
He leads MLB with 50 home runs and 127 RBI.
Not to mention he has an OPS of 1.000 on the year.
If not for the record-breaking year from his teammate Ronald Acuna Jr., Olson might be in line to win his first MVP award.
Ultimately, this Braves team has star players all over their lineup and Olson is the most recent to make history.NEXT: The Phillies Have 2 Surging Stars Over The Past Month
