The New York Yankees fought all the way back from a five-run deficit in their matchup against old manager Joe Girardi and the Philadelphia Phillies thanks to a late DJ LeMahieu home run, but the bullpen faltered late, and the Phillies walked away as the victors to hand the Yankees their second loss in as many games.
This team really need to get back in the win column before this series finishes up, as a team that came into the season with championship aspirations stands dangerously close to slipping to the .500 mark with a bad series against their NL East foes.

With New York on the road and fresh off another crushing loss, the Phillies are favored at -1.5 (money line -130). The Yankees are stuck in the mud thanks to their poor clutch play, and Vegas is finally starting to doubt them.
Yankees vs Phillies Pitching Matchup
Domingo German, who has dropped his ERA down to 3.12 after a very poor start to the season, will be on the bump for New York. This Phillies lineup is no joke, however, as they roughed up Jameson Taillon to the point he didn’t even make it out of the first inning.
Aaron Nola might have an ERA north of 4, but the Phillies ace will look to get back on the right track in this contest. Considering how bad the Yankees have been on the offensive side of the ball in recent weeks, Nola could get into a groove against the Bombers.
Yankees Starting Lineup
Neither Aaron Judge nor Giancarlo Stanton will suit up in this game, as Judge is dealing with back spasms and a DH like Stanton will have to sit out by virtue of playing in a National League ballpark. Rougned Odor moves up to the No. 3 spot in the order, with Miguel Andujar, Clint Frazier, and Brett Gardner making up the outfield.
Gary Sanchez will be behind the plate as he tries to help the squad break their losing streak.
