If this had been a boxing match, it would have been scored a first-round knockdown by the Phillies.

The Yankees came out swinging, and went down in order on six pitches in the top of the first. Things couldn’t have been different for Taillon in the bottom half, as he was on the ropes from the first pitch he threw.
