The game is set to start at 3:05 PM and it definitely will be a loud atmosphere for Nick and young Vincent during the pregame ceremonies.
The start of the 2023 season for the Philadelphia Phillies hasn’t been ideal after getting swept by the Texas Rangers on the road in their first series.
Last night, they lost to the New York Yankees 8-1 but finally have some life tonight, with Kyle Schwarber and Brandon Marsh both hitting home runs to give the Fightins a 2-0 lead in the top of the fifth inning.
