Hoskins went 2-for-3 with a double, a walk and four RBI in Tuesday's 6-2 win over the Dodgers. Hoskins came in mired in a 1-for-13 slump, but broke out with an RBI single to chase starter Yu Darvish in the sixth inning before delivering the game's biggest blow with a three-run double in the seventh. The rookie phenom already has seven multi-RBI performances in September and has now smacked five doubles to go with his 18 home runs in 39 major-league games. His patient approach was on full display in this one, as Hoskins saw a game-high 30 pitches in his four plate appearances.
Hoskins went 0-for-5 with three strikeouts in Sunday's 6-3 loss to the Athletics. Hoskins had a tough series against Oakland, going 0-for-11 with six strikeouts.

He'll try to bust out of his mini slump when the Phillies start a four-game set Monday against the Dodgers.
Manager Pete Mackanin said Hoskins will see more time at first base now that Aaron Altherr is back from his hamstring injury, Jim Salisbury of CSN Philadelphia reports.

He's likely to get 20-plus starts at first base this year, which will give him eligibility at two positions next season in fantasy leagues.
