Maikel Franco has been the hottest Phillies player so far in the early season, Franco went into today’s afternoon game in Washington leading the club in BA and other categories

The game last night in Washington was a really special game, it was broadcast nationally on MLB Network with Bob Costas, and it was the highest watched baseball game since 2012 for NBC Sports Philadelphia.

Here’s the official announcement for the ‘most streamed game’ ever in Philly sports history:

Phillies’ 8-2 Win Was Most-Streamed Phillies Game Ever
PHILADELPHIA- (April 3, 2019) – Bryce Harper returned to Washington, D.C., to face his old team, and with the Phillies off to their best start since 1915, last night’s game posted a 7.7 household rating on NBC Sports Philadelphia. The Phillies’ 8-2 win– highlighted by Harper’s two-run home run– is the highest-rated regular season game of any sport on either NBC Sports Philadelphia or NBC Sports Philadelphia+ since July 2012 (8.11 HH Rating, 7/5/12, Phillies vs. Mets).
On digital, the game delivered 43,000 unique devices and more than three million minutes, making it the most-streamed Phillies game ever.  The prior high was set for Phillies’ Opening Day, which registered 37,000 unique devices and two million minutes. 
The Phillies play the second of a two-game series with the Nationals today at 1 pm on NBC Sports Philadelphia and on the MyTeams app.
