Philadelphia Phillies vs Cincinnati Reds: Series Finale Live Stream, Start Time, TV Info and More
The Reds and Phillies end their season-opening series Thursday afternoon at 12:35. Here is where and how to watch the game.
With the series even at 1-1 after the Phillies‘ 2-0 loss to the Reds last night, the two teams square off this afternoon at Great American Ballpark to decide who will leave Cincinnati with a winning record.
Jerad Eickhoff got little run support as he lasted 6.2 innings while giving up just two runs – both in the seventh inning – while striking out six batters. The offense collected just four hits, three of which were infield singles.
Thursday Clay Buchholz will make his official debut as a Phillie. Rookie Davis will make his major-league debut for the Reds against Philadelphia. He came to the Reds in the Aroldis Chapman trade during the offseason after the 2015 season.
