The Phillies were represented by two members of the Lehigh Valley IronPigs Sunday in the annual Futures Game which took place in Miami as part of the annual All-Star Festival. Rhys Hoskins was the starting first baseman for the USA Team and Scott Kingery came in late in the game to play second base.
The U.S. team beat a team comprised of players from around the world 7-6.
Hoskins first at-bat came in the bottom of the first. The first two batters were retired before Derek Fisher (Astros) drew a walk and Hoskins followed with a hard line drive single to left to put runners on first and second. Nick Senzel (Reds) then singled to drive home Fisher and give Team USA a 1-0 lead.
Hoskins was hit by a pitch to lead off the third and then hit a sharp line drive to left with a runner on second and one out in the bottom of the fourth. The IronPigs first baseman left the game for a defensive replacement in the top of the sixth inning, the same time that Kingery entered the game to play second.
Kingery’s lone at-bat came in the bottom of the seventh and he flew out to right with runners on first and second and one out in the inning.
