Video: Rhys Hoskins Hits First HR into Second Deck in Atlanta
That’s all Rhys Hoskins needed to hit his first home run of the 2018 Phillies season.
The Phillies’ left fielder ripped a one-ball, two-strike, 96 mph fastball from Braves starter Mike Foltynewicz, depositing a solo-shot into the second deck, in left field at SunTrust Park in the second inning.
The home run traveled 423 feet and was hit at a speed of 109.7 mph, according to Statcast.
Hoskins now has 19 home runs in just 52 career big leagues games.
