Prepare for trouble... and make it double.
For the first time in Phillies (1-3) franchise history, the team will be playing a doubleheader comprised of two seven inning games.
Both contests against the New York Yankees (8-1) will be played in a mostly-empty Citizens Bank Park, however, the teams will split home team duties as the Phillies will play the "road" team in the first game and the "home" team for the second. Game one is scheduled to begin at 4:05 with game two starting roughly 35 minutes after the first concludes.
Each will air on NBCSP (tv) and WIP/WTTM1680 (radio) with game one also getting national television coverage on FS1.
While the Yankees have not announced their rotation at the time of this writing (check back for updates before first pitch), Phillies skipper Joe Girardi has lined up RHP Zack Wheeler (game one) and RHP Aaron Nola (game two), his two horses, to start.
