How many games does it take to accrue Hall of Fame eligibility? Asking for a friend.
Rhys Hoskins hit a pair of home runs Tuesday night against the Miami Marlins to increase his career total to 16 over the first 32 games of his career. That’s right, the Philadelphia Phillies rookie is averaging a dinger every other game.
None of his 16 homers were as timely as the second one of Tuesday’s game though, as the first baseman dramatically improved his team’s winning percentage by tying the game with a solo bomb in the bottom of the tenth inning with two out. The home run gained the Phillies 48.9 percent win probability.
Including Tuesday's six plate appearances, Hoskins is slugging a nearly-unfathomable .754 with a .424 OBP in 32 games.
