Phillies' Maikel Franco: Launches sixth homer
Franco went 1-for-5 with a three-run home run in Tuesday's 14-3 rout of the Mets.
With Rhys Hoskins (ankle) banged up a bit, Franco slid over to first base for the first time this season, but the new position did nothing to slow him down at the plate. He's now slashing .259/.385/.630 through 16 games with six homers and 17 RBI, but with Scott Kingery swinging an even hotter bat right now, Franco could eventually begin to lose the occasional start.
