Hole Shot: Phillies vs Astros Game Thread, April 3, 2011

The Phillies look to finish off an out-of-the-gate sweep of the Astros behind former Astro Roy Oswalt. Bud Norris takes the mound for Houston after JA Happ was scratched with an oblique injury.

Assuming the Phillies do complete the sweep, they will almost certainly be repaid with a sweep in September when these two teams next face off and the Phillies are in a close race for the division.

Discuss the game here.
