Despite the two runs scored by Colombian Giovanny Urshela, New York’s ninth fell 5-4 and added their third loss of the season.
The Yankees they tried until the end, only this time from the mound they knew how to control them, especially interpreting when men like Aaron Judge, so hot at bat since the season started, they stood on the pad. The PhilliesThey did an impressive job in closing and took the 5-4 victory to slow the ninth of New York.
Hector Neris, the Dominican pitcher, varied his repertoire well and when Judge opened the compass he took advantage of his straights, then his sliders and thus confused the Yankees hitter all night.
On the offensive side, the visitors went up very early with three runs just in the bottom of the first. In the third they already won 5-0 and when the reaction of the Big Apple began everything was late.
The two lines of the Colombian Giovanny Urshela were worthless, who closed his day with a 4-1, because the advantage was already uncountable. The winner was reliever Deolis Guerra, while the defeat was aimed at Jordan Montgomery.
Now the Yankees will face off against the Rays, while the Phillies will go to Atlanta to collide with the Braves.
