It’s finally here! The moment that just about every Phillies fan has been waiting for: The debut of pitching prospect Spencer Howard. Howard and the Phillies will attempt to salvage the second game of today’s doubleheader after falling 5-2 to the Braves in the opener.

Howard won’t have an easy time of it, as he’ll be opposed by the Braves’ best starter, Max Fried.
