Five things we learned from Phillies series win over Rockies
Rhys Hoskins is alive
Rhys Hoskins had about as good of an April and as bad of a May as any hitter can have. He fouled a ball into his face May 28 against the Dodgers, fracturing his jaw and placing him on the disabled list. Thankfully, the injury did not require surgery and he was back in the lineup just a week and a half later.

Since returning from the disabled list, Hoskins is succeeding yet again. In five games since coming back, Hoskins already has hit two home runs and driven in eight runs. He has racked up six hits and three walks. Perhaps even better, he has just four strikeouts in 21 plate appearances.
Hoskins finally hitting again would be a godsend for a team struggling to find offense. Perhaps getting some time off helped him reset. Maybe it’s the dual-flap helmet.
Whatever it is, I hope May is well behind him and he can return to being the hitter we all know he can be.
