Series Preview: Phillies stay out west, kick off 3-game set tonight on AppleTV+
The Phillies kick off a 3-game set tonight with the San Francisco Giants on AppleTV+.
Kyle Gibson (9-5, 4.08 ERA) gets the ball for the Phillies, going up against Alex Cobb (4-6, 3.81 ERA) for San Fran.
The Phils start off the month of September on the west coast, taking on a 61-68 Giants team who has underperformed in 2022 after winning 106 games last season. The Phillies had a rough series against the Diamondbacks but did salvage the series, as Bailey Falter and the offense carried the team to an 18-2 win.
As September comes, so do roster expansions. The Phillies added Vinny Nittoli and Donny Sands to their major league roster yesterday, rounding out to the mandatory 28 players for September and the postseason. Don’t expect Sands to be up the whole time, as the team will most certainly bring back Darick Hall as a bench bat or even Yairo Munoz.
Tonight’s game will be streamed exclusively on AppleTV+, the Phillies’ final game of the year on the streaming program. You can watch the game here.
