New York Yankees Vs Philadelphia Phillies Series Preview
The New York Yankess and Philadelphia Phillies will square off tomorrow night in a short two game series in Philadelphia. From Philadelphia the two teams will then travel to the Bronx and play another two.
The Yankees are doing nothing but BASH baseballs. Of the 18 hits they have accumulated in Washington DC against the Nationals, 22% of them have been Home Runs.
They were able to take 2 of 3 from the defending World Series Champions but the game three rubber match was tight! It was a game in which the Yankees pulled out a 3-2 victory with some excellent work out out the bullpen and despite some shaky fielding from Gleyber Torres. The NYY bullpen led by Adam Ottavino, Chad Green, Tommy Kahnle & Zach Britton were excellent. They allowed 0 runs on 3 hits over 5 scoreless innings. “A lot of guys played a role in a hard earned victory” – Aaron Boone.
Phillies Manager Joe Girardi and SS Didi Gregorius will get an opportunity to face their old team for the 1st time tomorrow night. Giardi and Didi have not had the start to the 2020 abbreviated MLB season that they have hoped for. The Philadelphia Phillies dropped 2 of 3 at home to what could be the worst team in baseball.
Heading into game 3 of Miami Marlins Vs Philadelphia Phillies the series was tied 1-1. The Phillies would race out to a 4-0 lead in the 1st inning of game 3 only lose 11-6.
Joe Girardi has already commented on how it will be “Odd” to face the Yankees with a different uniform. Oddities aside, the Fighting Phils need to be careful in with the next four games Vs NYY. You do not want to find yourself behind the 8-ball after a single week of play.
