Clearwater Threshers Dylan Cozens Hits For a Two Game Cycle In His Return To The Lineup

Never ending rain in the Clearwater area this weekend might be about the only way to cool off the hot bat of the Threshers Dylan Cozens.

He has been on fire in his two games back with the Threshers.

In his first game back he hit a tape measure home run off the walkway behind the berm in right in Wednesday night, watch HERE.

Thursday night he banged out a single, double and triple to complete a two game cycle against the Jupiter Hammerheads at Bright House, watch HERE, HERE and HERE.

Cozens was hot with the bat before going down with a lower body injury back in June, hitting .304 for that month and is now 4 for 9 and with a two game cycle for July.  Now back in the Threshers lineup he looks to finish the last six weeks of the season strong.

Last season Cozens played with Lakewood and later off season ball in Australia.  He hit a combined 23 home runs to lead all Phillies organization left handed bats in home runs for the combined season.

With the wind blowing from in from first to third for most of this season, it was knocking everything down hit to right at Bright House so Cozens has started slowly with the long balls.

But this week the wind has come in off the Gulf  helping left handed power hitters going to right.  Cozens looks ready to put up some big long ball numbers for the rest of the season much like Art Charles did last year with the Threshers.

If the Phillies ever get back in contention in the National League East, they need a left handed hitting power bat in right field.  Dylan Cozens is showing he can be that guy especially after this week so far in Clearwater.
