    Phillies prospect Dylan Cozens honored after an epic offensive week

    Phillies outfield prospect Dylan Cozens was honored Monday for his headline-grabbing stretch of games, winning International League Batter of the Week.

    From May 8 to May 14, Cozens went 11 for 28 with a double, four home runs and eight RBIs, hitting two walk-off homers and a game-tying, ninth-inning single.

    Cozens is on a tear this month. He's 17 for 46 (.370) in May with five homers, a double, triple, 13 RBIs and 12 runs scored in 13 games. He also has just nine strikeouts in those 13 games after punching out 24 times in his previous 13 games.

    The IronPigs have been on fire, winning nine straight games to surge to the top of the International League standings at 23-13.

    Cozens isn't the only hot IronPig. First baseman Rhys Hoskins has been even better in May than he was in April, going 15 for 42 (.357) with seven extra-base hits and 16 RBIs in 13 games. He's hitting .345/.432/.655 with nine homers and 28 RBIs on the season.
