The Phillies got a power surge last night from super rook Rhys Hoskins and Tommy Joseph, and a three-run triple from Nick Williams in a five-run eighth inning that made it a one-run game.
Hoskins was hit by a Brian Ellington 98-mph fastball in his right wrist in the seventh inning. He stayed in to run the bases but was replaced by Freddy Galvis in left field. Galvis moved from shortstop to left field when Andres Blanco entered the game.
Hoskins, who said an MRI was negative, is currently day to day with the bruised and swollen wrist. Mackanin said he was taken out for precautionary reasons.
“Not because it was really bothering him, but we just wanted to make sure he was OK,” Mackanin said.
