Philadelphia Phillies’ individual performances: Honorable mentions

Hoskins 6-RBI game

One of Rhys Hoskins’ best games of the season was on the road, against an eventual 107-win San Francisco Giants on June 19. He hit a two-run home run against Alex Wood, with two outs in the second inning, to give the Phillies a 3-2 lead. He also had an RBI double against Zack Littell in the sixth inning and a three-run home run against Conner Menez, with two outs in the seventh inning.

Suárez complete-game shutout

Ranger Suárez’s spectacular season included a complete-game shutout in his penultimate appearance, a home start against the Pittsburgh Pirates on September 25. He retired 15 of his first 16 batters faced and had no more than one baserunner in a single inning. He gave up four hits but no walks, while striking out seven, in an outing where he threw just 97 pitches, also known as a Maddux game.

Miller walk-off grand slam

Brad Miller provided the exclamation point in a remarkable Phillies comeback from a 7-0 deficit in the second game of a doubleheader, on July 29 against the Washington Nationals. Miller’s two hits came late in the game. He hit a two-out single against Wander Suero in the seventh inning, which helped lead to three runs and a tied game.

Miller then came to the plate with the bases loaded and the Phillies trailing by a run in the eighth inning. He hit a grand slam on the fourth pitch from Sam Clay to end the game.

Torreyes 3-hit and 3-HR game

Ronald Torreyes carried the offense on July 11 against the Boston Red Sox at Fenway Park. He came up with the Phillies’ first hit of the game, with a single in the third inning against former Phillie Nick Pivetta. His next plate appearance came with two outs in the fourth inning against Pivetta, where he hit a three-run home run above the “Green Monster.” He later singled in the ninth inning and also had a stolen base in the game.
