Phils manager Gabe Kapler never has a discouraging word about anything.
No matter how badly the Phils play he chimes in with positivity.
Here’s an example:
Rhys Hoskins nearly tied it in the eighth, but his drive to deep center was caught at the wall by Manuel Margot.
Hoskins went 0-for-4 and has one hit in his last 24 at-bats. The slugger has gone 14 games without a homer.
“Rhys had great at-bats today even though the results aren’t there,” Kapler said. “I know this is going to turn around for him.”
