Spencer Howard was what the Phillies anticipated from him being able to do last night for this Phillies team. He took the ball and earned his first win of his Phillies career. He pitched 5.0 innings and gave up 2.0 R in the ballgame.

Washington did rally in the 9th to bring the game closer, but an 8-6 Phillies win was at hand last night powered by Rhys Hoskins and his dramatic break-out from a deep slump he was in for most of the first half of the 2020 season. Hoskins hit his first HR of the season on August 18th, since then he has hit 5 more HR and raised his BA from .207 to .260 since the 18th.

Tuesday night at 7:05 PM, it’s Corbin (2-2 3.82 ERA) and Nola (3-2 3.00 ERA) as the Washington Nationals series continues.
