THE PHILLIES will begin the 2013 season in less than 3 months in a nationally televised night game from Atlanta.
ESPN announced Thursday it would carry the Phillies-Braves game from Turner Field on ESPN2 on Monday, April 1, at 7 p.m. The game is part of the network's Opening Day doubleheader, with St. Louis at Arizona serving as the nightcap.
It's the second time the Phillies will open at night in the last 5 years.
ESPN will televise two games on its regular network earlier in the day: Red Sox at Yankees (1 p.m.) and Giants at Dodgers (4).
