Phillies sweep the Yankees, 7-0. The Philadelphia Phillies suddenly may have found their mojo and swept the two-game series against the Bronx Bombers.
Aaron Nola was at his best with 7 2/3 innings of work allowing only three New York hits with a walk and nine strikeouts. The trio of Odubel Herrera, Jean Segura, and JT Realmuto was the offensive story by going a combined 7 for 13 with a double, triple, 4 runs scored and five knocked in.
“I always have my confidence,” Nola said. “I just had some things not going my way. It was frustrating not getting out fifth inning three of the last four. To myself, that’s not what I usually do. I want to go deep into games and put my team in a position to win. Not having the command that I’m used to having is frustrating. But it doesn’t keep me from keep working on in throwing sessions and bullpen sessions. And I always go into the next game with confidence.”
Realmuto started the hit parade with an RBI infield single followed by Herrera making it 2-0 with an RBI double. Jean Segura plated two more with a single with Realmuto picking up his second RIBBI making it a 5-0 lead. Andrew McCutchen was responsible for the final two runs with a double. Phillies sweep the Yankees. The Phils head West to Dodger land for a 10:00 pm starts on Monday.
