PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — Opening Day is finally here! The new-look Phillies toppled the Braves 10-4 Thursday at Citizens Bank Park and you won’t want to miss a thing.
What a start! Andrew McCutchen launched a homer to deep center in the Phillies’ first at-bat of the season to put them on top 1-0. Aaron Nola did his part in the top of the inning, sitting down the Braves on just 10 pitches.
Bryce Harper came out to quite the ovation from fans.
Maybe it had something to do with his awesome Phillie Phanatic-inspired kicks.
Who needs Manny Machado? In the 6th inning, third basemen Maikel Franco opened up the game with a 3-run shot to left to give the Phillies a 6-1 lead.
GRAND SLAM! Rhys Hoskins cleared the plates with a homer in the bottom of the 7th. 10-3 Phils.
That’ll do it. The Phils smack the Braves, 10-4, for an Opening Day win!
