Max Muncy apologized for spiking Rhys Hoskins
Max Muncy has done his part to make it clear he did not intentionally spike Rhys Hoskins during a play at first base.
During Thursday’s game between the Philadelphia Phillies and Los Angeles Dodgers, Muncy stepped on the heel of Hoskins as he crossed first base. While some called it a dirty play, Muncy said after the game that he immediately apologized for the step. Replays also show Muncy turning around and gesturing as if to apologize immediately after spiking the Phillies first baseman.

While this may have rubbed some Phillies players the wrong way, the Dodgers had their turn to be upset later in the game. After Hector Neris recorded the save, Dodgers players took exception to the Phillies closer staring into their dugout.
