Game 16 - 2018 Topps Heritage New Age Performers #NAP-22 Rhys Hoskins

Phillies 5, Braves 1 (10)
Game 16 - Tuesday Night, April 17th in Atlanta
Record - 10-6, 2nd place, 2 games behind the Mets

One Sentence Summary:  Rhys Hoskins delivered a two-run double in the 10th inning as the Phillies won this game in extras, 5-1.

What It Means:  The Phils will go for the series win tonight.  They'll then travel home and open a 10-game home stand with a four-game series with the Pirates.

What Happened:  Hoskins was having a miserable game before his big hit, having struck out three times and grounding into a double play.  His double scored Scott Kingery and Cesar Hernandez.  A few batters later, Maikel Franco doubled home Hoskins and Aaron Altherr providing some cushion.

Nick Pivetta allowed a run on five hits in his five-inning start.  Hector Neris was the recipient of the win thanks to his scoreless ninth inning.

Featured Card:  I'm expecting Hoskins to appear in every Topps insert set possible this year, and I've already added a bunch of his 2018 cards to my collection.  This is his groovy New Age Performers insert from the Topps Heritage release.
