What a time to be alive. The Phillies beat the Miami Marlins 8-0. What a time to be Mark Leiter Jr. and and Rhys Hoskins.

Leiter, who was starting in place of an injured Zach Eflin, pitched an absolute gem by tossing seven one-hit innings while striking out five. The right-hander was flawless in mixing speeds and keeping a potent Miami lineup at bay. Two of Leiter’s 21 outs were recorded by way of outfield fly outs.

Hoskins’ onslaught continued, as he went 2-for-3 with a three-run home run and five RBI. He now has seven home runs and 16 RBI in his first 14 games. To make it sound better, Hoskins’ first four games were RBI-less.

Hoskins and the rest of his teammates jumped all over Marlins’ starter Justin Nicolino. Cesar Hernandez, who doubled and tripled, and Nick Williams each had two hits.

But this night was about Leiter and Hoskins.
