Phillies to embark in rare series vs White Sox

The franchise for the Phillies has been around a long time. The team started of course in 1883 and since then, the Phillies have only played the Chicago White Sox a total of 9 times. So, the series that is starting this afternoon and then the night game of the day/night doubleheader will be less than a dozen times that […]
