The Phillies announcer, called home from Atlanta, is a first-time pop.

It's a boy for the Scott Franzkes

Phillies announcer Scott Franzke and his wife, Lori, are parents.

Two weeks early, she delivered a 7-pound, 15-ounce boy Thursday night at 10:13, shortly after the Phils beat the Braves.

His name is August. The couple likes the name Gus and August.

(Most Phillies fans like the name Octo.)

Franzke's return date to the booth is not yet set.
