PHILADELPHIA — Former Phillies player Rhys Hoskins made a memorable return to Citizens Bank Park during Monday night’s game against the Brewers. Despite facing the challenge of stealing a base off Phillies catcher J.T. Realmuto and trying to hit against pitcher Zack Wheeler, Hoskins managed to add some excitement to the game.

In the fifth inning, after working a leadoff walk, Hoskins successfully stole second base, much to the surprise of Realmuto. The two shared a lighthearted moment on the field before Realmuto got the chance to tag Hoskins out at second base on the next play.

Hoskins, who also hit a solo home run off Wheeler later in the game, expressed his excitement about facing his former teammates and friends on the field. The crowd’s reaction was mixed, showing both support and some boos for the former Phillies player.

Despite the entertaining moments provided by Hoskins, Wheeler ultimately secured the victory for the Phillies by holding the Brewers to just one run over seven innings. The game ended with the Phillies emerging victorious with a 3-1 win.

Overall, Hoskins’ return to Citizens Bank Park added a fun and competitive element to the game, showcasing the camaraderie and friendly competition among former teammates in the world of baseball.
