It's pretty crazy that Scott Kingery got better by doing the exact opposite of what the Phils hitting coach asked him to do.
Well, Scott Kingery won't be blamed for this one should the Phillies lose.
He's got two homers in a game for the first time in his career.
It's 11-5, Arizona.
Scott Kingery has more extra-base hits (18) than singles (17) this season. The consistent power gives off a whiff of added sustainability, it’s not as if he’s dinking and dunking cheap knocks over a middle infielder’s head.
Only 5 players in ⚾️ are hitting at least .320, 360 0BP, 600 slugging % 🔥🔥

Scott Kingery - Philadelphia Phillies (7) 3-run
SCOTT KINGERY! 3-RUN HOME RUN! 3-0 Phillies here in the bottom of the second! It's Kingery's seventh home run of the season. https://t.co/iTWQ27gheg
The ball is jumping off Scott Kingery's bat lately. He just hit his third home run in two days, and seventh overall. Just a reminder, he's making a whopping $1.25 million in 2019.
Scott Kingery’s walk rate blows and his strikeouts are high, but you have to think if he keeps mashing the ball like this the walks will come as pitchers avoid him
Another Scott Kingery homer. I know he's long gone in deeper leagues and at least represented in the medium pools, but there's a lot of room on this ride. Three positions, has a pedigree, needs to play. He's been a little lucky but mostly he owns what he's doing.
Scott Kingery is not *hot* right now. He’s simply just really good at baseball. 🔥🔥🔥 #Phillies #RingTheBell https://t.co/7arMzlaTGY
The Phillies, as everyone predicted before the season, are being led by Scott Kingery and Jay Bruce
Just your reminder that Scott Kingery hasn't played center field since college. Don't worry, it only cost the Phillies two runs
brb ordering my Scott Kingery Jersey. This kid is here to stay! #RingTheBell
Scott Kingery, hopelessly overmatched last season, has turned into reliable, terrific batter this season. #Phillies
i think he just said “Scott Kelley lifts it down the left field line”. Scott Kingery was batting.
With men on first and second, Carson Kelly hits a double that scores two runs. Scott Kingery's defensive weaknesses in center field show as he trips up. 4-2 Phillies with a man on second/two outs
End of the 3rd: #Phillies 4 Diamondbacks 0
Scott Kingery: 3-run home run(7)
Bryce Harper: RBI double
Scott kingery more like Scott DINGERY #Phillies
Did Scott Kelly just pop out or was it Scott Kingery ? #Tommcarthyisms
@shirfire218 @azcentral @achs_fred
. The problem with so many guys is they can only play 1 position...and are righthanded. As a Manager it really hamstrings ya. Hoskins, Walker & both Kron's fit that. Scott Kingery, conversely, can play 6 positions. The Phillies r jerking him around. AGAIN.
Kevin Cron and Scott Kingery were on the same state champion high school team in Arizona.
In my 3 years in Minor League Baseball, two player struck me as no doubt future superstars. Those two are Vlad Jr and Scott Kingery. Kingery has already outplayed his contracts worth #Phillies
Remember when people wrote Scott Kingery off after last year? That was adorable.
Clearly evident Scott Kingery is not a center fielder lol
Offensive surge in the bottom of the 2nd! Scott Kingery three run homerun and Bryce Harper doubled to score Sean Rodriguez. #Phillies lead #Diamondbacks, 4-0, in the top of the 4th.
Scott Kingery should be the leadoff hitter yesterday and for the next 8+ years.
He also called Scott Kingery "Scott Kelly".
Did Tom McCarthy just refer to Scott Kingery as Scott Kelly? WTH? Your own broadcaster? #ARIvsPHI
Who’s Scott Kelly????????? Scott Kingery, Einstein. #PhiladelphiaPhillies
Jay Bruce has been unreal so far and awesome to see development of Scott Kingery. Ever learns to stay in strike zone more will be an All star. Wish I could say the same about pitching
And shoutout to Scott kingery for just existing
The great irony of tonight’s game is that it’s Scott Kingery that has made the biggest play so far, and he near singlehandedly gave Arrietta a four-run cushion.
I hope Scott calls him out if this lead is blown as revenge.
Scott Kingery Is Filth 🔥🔥
Since when did Scott Kingery turn into Mickey Mantle?? #RingTheBell
This scott kingery guy might be good, yall
Scott Kingery draws a walk to put two runners on for Sean Rodriguez
