Game 66 - 2018 Topps Phillies #PP-1 Rhys Hoskins

Phillies 9, Rockies 3
Game 66 - Thursday Afternoon, June 14th in Philadelphia
Record - 35-31, 3rd place, 4 games behind the Braves

One Sentence Summary:  The offense came alive in this 9-3 win over the Rockies.

What It Means:  The Phils took the series from the Rockies and they'll head to Milwaukee for a quick weekend get-away with the Brewers before returning home on Monday against the Cardinals.

What Happened:  Vince Velasquez no-hit the Rockies through 6 2/3, allowing a double to Trevor Story on the 105th and final pitch he threw.  Three of the team's 13 hits came from Rhys Hoskins, who hit a solo home run (8) in the 1st inning and ended the day with 3 RBIs.  Nick Williams (8) connected for a solo home run of his own in the 2nd.

Featured Card:  This is Hoskins' first featured card since way back from the May 5th game, as he's just now emerging from a bad slump followed by a disabled list stint for a broken jaw.  He's hitting .353 (6 for 17) with a pair of home runs since his return from the disabled list.
