Scott Kingery gets first career hit in Phillies-Braves game

Scott Kingery didn’t waste much time getting his first big-league milestone.

The Phillies’ rookie infielder needed just two at-bats to get his first career hit, a single up the middle off Braves’ pitcher Mike Foltynewicz in the top of the fourth inning.

Kingery, nickamed “Scotty Jetpacks” got to second on a wild pitch, then made it to third on an errant throw to second.

Kingery signed a six-year, $24 million contract during spring training with options for 2024, 2025, and 2026.
