Tuesday's minors: LF Rhys Hoskins homers again, ditto for Lakewood's Darick Hall

A look at the results of Tuesday’s games for the Phillies farm system.

INTERNATIONAL LEAGUE (AAA)

NORFOLK 7, LEHIGH VALLEY 6 — LF Rhys Hoskins (1-for-5) hit his 28th home run of the season and C Nick Rickles had a two-run single for the IronPigs (67-49) . . . CF Dylan Cozens singled and scored twice.

Hoskins is hitting .280 on the season and he’s hit four homers in 29 at-bats in the month of August. He’s played the last two nights in leftfield (two putouts, no errors on Tuesday) after spending his entire pro career at first base. Hoskins’ 28 home runs are the most by a Phillies Triple-A player since Jerry Keller hit 28 in 1983.

By the way, Ryan Howard’s career high for Triple-A home runs was 16 in 2005.

[Brookover: Position switch could be Hoskins’ road to the majors]
