Hoskins has homered in four straight games and seven of his past eight. All 10 home runs have come since Aug. 14 -- more than the Washington Nationals (seven HRs) and the San Francisco Giants (six HRs) and as many as the San Diego Padres and the Kansas City Royals in that span.
"It is pretty special, definitely an honor,'' Hoskins said. "I'm just glad I was able to do it in a Phillies uniform.''
Called up from Triple-A on Aug. 10, Hoskins also singled in the seventh and is batting .300 with 23 RBIs. He has tied Ryan Howard for most homers a month by a Phillies rookie. Howard had 10 in September 2005.
