Howard is starting out well this year
The Phillies came to Houston to play in game one of the series with the Astros and J.A. Happ looked pretty sharp in his debut. The offense was firing away last night also, with Placido Polonco again displaying an offensive might.
The Phils offense pounded out 16 hits on the night, Polonco had 4 by himself. The game tonight is 7:05 PM and Jamie Moyer will get his first start of the season tonight.
Some familiar faces are on the Astros, Michael Bourn, Pedro Feliz, and Brett Myers among them. The Astros have been out of the gate with a terrible start, they are winless so I expect them to pull out all of the stops tonight as they need a win.
