The Fightin Phils, fresh off a 4-2 road record, opened up a two game series with Harrisburg Friday night.

The Fightin Phils dropped their first two games against Portland to start the season, then went on to win their next seven ballgames. Reading fell to Richmond 4-1 Wednesday, but went 4-2 on their recent road trip and returned home to FirstEnergy Stadium tonight to host Harrisburg for a short two game set. Tonight Jesse Biddle got the nod and was looking for his first win of the season. Reading took three of four from the Senators when they played in Harrisburg last week.
