Phils Win 5-4, Split Series with Yanks

The Philadelphia Phillies (3-4) beat the New York Yankees (9-3) on Thursday night at Citizens Bank Park, splitting the Phils second series of 2020.  

Phillies’ Bryce Harper and J.T. Realmuto celebrate after Realmuto’s three-run first inning home run.

This game was okay, the offense did a good enough job to win, and the bullpen finally held a team to less than three runs. Eflin’s start wasn’t bad, allowing just a two run single over four innings. He threw only about 60-70 pitches, which was expected considering this was only his second time out on the hill since March.

The Yankees made it a little iffy toward the end, as Gary Sanchez launched a two-run home run in the top of the seventh inning off of Nick Pivetta. The Yankees mustered a double in the eighth, and two singles to put up a fight in the ninth, but closer Hector Neris was able to lock down the one run victory. Wasn’t INCREDIBLY impressed with anything, but hey, we got the win.

Scoring Recap:

Bottom first

J.T. Realmuto hits a three-run homer, Rhys Hoskins scores, Bryce Harper scores, 3-0 Philadelphia

Top second

Mike Tauchman two-run single, Brett Gardner scores, Gio Urshela scores, 3-2 Phillies.

Bottom third

Phil Gosselin lines a two-run double, Bryce Harper scores, J.T. Realmuto scores, 5-2 Philly.

Top seventh

Gary Sanchez homers, Gio Urshela scores, 5-4 Phils.

FINAL: Phillies 5, Yankees 4

A look ahead:

The Phillies will stay at home for some action against the Atlanta Braves this weekend. It will be a four-game series, ending with a Monday night game. Definitely a huge series for the Phils.
