Phillies rookie Rhys Hoskins continues historic home run pace

Don't answer that. It was a rhetorical question.

For the Philadelphia Phillies, their hope is that the recently called-up Rhys Hoskins is that guy.

Blue Jays 10, Twins 9 • Josh Donaldson had three hits, including a two-run home run, Kendrys Morales added a solo shot and Toronto beat visiting Minnesota.

If there's one thing baseball needs more of, it's inside-the-park dingers.

Since making his MLB debut on August 10, Hoskins has nine home runs, tied with Gary Sanchez for second-most homers in the majors during that stretch (Stanton has the most with 11).

So in 12 games that he's had a sense of major league pitchers, Hoskins has homered in two thirds of them.

His two-run homer in the first last night accounted for the Phils' only runs of the evening as they were demolished by the Cubs.


Of the 25 players to open with the IronPigs, 13 already have played for the Phillies this season.

Veteran Pedro Florimon draws back into Pete Mackanin's starting nine. The 38-year-old continues to struggle with the long ball, allowing 31 homers in 24 games, but he has been able to limit the damage of late. Following his homer on Saturday, he has now gone deep in four consecutive games and seven of his last eight. The 15-year veteran enters today's matchup with a 10-9 record and 4.90 ERA on the season.

Jerad Eickhoff allowed four runs (all earned) in 4.2 innings against the giants on Saturday, snapping a streak of five consecutive starts going at least 5.0 innings and allowing three or fewer runs.

Leiter is the son of former Phillies pitcher Mark Leiter and the nephew of two-time All-Star left-hander Al Leiter.

But Hoskins snagged Javier Baez's sinking liner and threw to Cesar Hernandez at second to double off Rizzo, who had been running with the pitch. "He looks like a professional hitter, he's not afraid to get behind in the count, he's not afraid to go the other way, he wants to drive in the run". That same day, the Lehigh Valley lineup in its 5-4 loss at Charlotte included three players who were on the IronPigs' Opening Day roster: J.P. Crawford, Dylan Cozens and Logan Moore.

Rhys Hoskins simply can not be stopped.

Tommy Joseph went 1-4 with a single.
