For the second time this season, Phillies ace Aaron Nola will take the mound with fans scrambling to find the game on television.
Once again, YouTube has exclusive rights to a Phillies game, which means fans won’t be able to watch Thursday’s match-up against the San Francisco Giants on NBC Sports Philadelphia.
Fortunately, you can stream the game right here:
The game is part of a new deal between MLB and YouTube that has allowed the popular video platform to exclusively air one game a week through the end of the season. Last year, Facebook had a similar deal with the league, which forced somewhat-reluctant Phillies fans to the social media giant’s website four times in order to watch games.
Calling the game on YouTube will be play-by-play announcer Rich Waltz, former Giants All-Star pitcher Shawn Estes, and NBC Sports Philadelphia’s Ben Davis, who also called the team’s YouTube debut last month (filling in for a sick John Kruk).
If you don’t feel like turning to YouTube, you can still listen to play-by-play on 94.1 WIP, where Scott Franzke and Kevin Frandsen will have the call.
Here are the YouTube games scheduled through the end of August:
Where: Oracle Park, San Francisco
Time: 9:45 p.m.
Streaming: YouTube (Rich Waltz, Shawn Estes, Ben Davis)
Radio: 94.1 WIP (Scott Franzke, Kevin Frandsen)
