Eric Hosmer had a solid night for San Diego, going 2-for-4 with a solo home run in the 6-2 loss to the Phillies Thursday.
Hosmer hit his sixth home run of the season. The Padres offense is likely going to struggle until Manny Machado can make his return. Jorge Alfaro and Hosmer are probably not going to carry this offense, the guys hitting in the heart of the lineup. After an insanely hot start to the season, the 32-year-old first baseman has fallen off a cliff until recently. Maybe this is a sign that he can warm back up.
