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.
Spencer Howard Day— John Clark (@JClarkNBCS) August 9, 2020
MLB debut today in game 2
I asked him if he will he be less nervous with no fans
“With the (fake) crowd noise, maybe it will help and I can try to pretend some of the crowd noise is my family”
“It’s going to be crazy”
Howard won’t have an easy time of it, as he’ll be opposed by the Braves’ best starter, Max Fried.
