Watch: Rhys Hoskins launches home run to make it a one-run game

The Phillies were down and out. Tom McCarthy said it best during the broadcast: It felt like a ten-run deficit despite the fact that it was only a four-run deficit. The fans were itching for something to cheer for. A Bryce Harper single and an Andrew McCutchen double gave them just that.

What really got the fans on their feet was what came next. After going down 1-2 in the count, Rhys Hoskins did not miss a hanging breaking ball to make it a one-run game.

Hoskins’ 22nd home run of the year could not have come at a better time. With two strikes on him in 2021, Hoskins has nine home runs and 25 RBIs. The Phillies still trail 4-3 in the bottom of the sixth but have all of the momentum on their side.

    The current Phillies team is all hero or heartbreak. They don’t seem to be able to bring runners across the plate any way except with the homer. People walk and hit singles or doubles, but they’ll be left stranded if the homer doesn’t come in behind them. The pitching is similar – either a starter or a reliever like Suarez really shines – or they kind of stink. With the relatively weak defense – there is nothing workmanlike about this team – it’s all feast or famine – go big or go broke. Exciting to watch in many games, but hard to get any feel of momentum. I don’t mean to be hypercritical or unappreciative, just pointing out – I guess it’s a style.
