The Phillies haven’t had a good year. Like, they really haven’t had a good year; they currently sit in the basement of the worst division in baseball, the NL East, with a record of 47-81. However, they have had a shining light come to the fore at the end of the year in the form of rookie Rhys Hoskins.

Hoskins had 10 home runs in just 17 games played heading into Sunday, when he somehow added to the total:

That’s Hoskins going yard for the fifth straight game, his 11th home run in 18 major league games, which is a record. We just saw the fastest any player in league history has reached 11 home runs, which is pretty cool. (Of course, it’s also a good sign that the ball might be a bit, uh, out of norm.)

The home runs on their own would be enough to make Hoskins one of the most fun players to watch at the moment, but on Sunday, he also kicked off a triple play by making a shoestring grab in left field. It’s a weird triple play, so take a look if you want to see major league baseball players look as confused as a t-ball player on the basepaths:

That Hoskins bobble is what probably sold it; the runners had no idea whether or not they needed to tag or advance, but hey, a triple play is a triple play!

Rhys Hoskins can do no wrong.
