Sept. 12 vs. Miami
With two outs in the bottom of the 10th, Hoskins hits a 99.8 mph fastball from Marlins reliever Brian Ellington 413 feet to center field to tie the game. The Phillies go on to win 9-8 in 15 innings. Hoskins adds to his record for most home runs hit after making a season debut after Aug. 1 or later. Ted Williams, one of baseball’s greatest hitters, held the previous record at 13 in 1953.
