Rhys Hoskins, yet another homer.
He did it again in Sunday's 6-3 victory over the Cubs, launching a solo shot off Chicago reliever Koji Uehara in the eighth. Hoskins, who has 24 RBIs, was called up from Triple-A Lehigh Valley on August 10.
Hoskins continued his historic pace with a first-inning home run that gave him 10 in his first 17 games, marking the fastest a player has reached 10 homers in major league history. The Cubs scored seven runs in the 7th inning.
Hendricks (5-4) earned his first victory since May 24, limiting the Phillies to two runs and six hits with eight strikeouts and no walks. Hernandez fired to Tommy Joseph at first to retire LaStella, who also left early.

Reliever Drew Anderson was optioned to Lehigh Valley to make room on the roster for Pivetta, who had been sent down earlier in the week. It was also the second time this month he's registered five RBIs in a game. Hector Neris worked a ideal ninth for his 16th save in 19 chances.
Edubray Ramos came out of the bullpen to throw two scoreless innings.
At the plate Williams, Pedro Florimon and Maikel Franco had two hits each for the Phillies, and Florimon's bunt single triggered the five-run fifth.
