2017 Chachi In Action #7 Rhys Hoskins

Padres 7, Phillies 4
Game 116 - Late Monday Night, August 14th in San Diego
Record - 43-73, 5th place, 27 games behind the Nationals

One Sentence Summary:  Rhys Hoskins slugged his first two big league home runs, but the Padres still defeated the Phillies, 7-4.

What It Means:  Hoskins is the first Phillies player to hit the first two home runs of his career in the same game since Scott Rolen did it on August 21, 1996.

What Happened:  Odubel Herrera extended his hitting streak to a career-best 17 games.  Ricardo Pinto allowed most of the damage, giving up five Padres runs on four hits in his two innings of relief.

Featured Card:  Hoskins gets the In Action treatment to celebrate his first (of hopefully many) Major League home runs.
