Hoskins, Kingery on Victorious USA Futures Team

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.
