After getting way ahead in the first inning, the Phillies needed yet another walkoff win to run their win streak to three. It’s not the preferred way to win games, but it’s a win.
Let’s talk about that start. The first inning saw the Phillies chase Yankees starter Jameson Taillon early after he allowed four runs on five hits, all of them singles, a walk and a sacrifice fly to Andrew McCutchen that came within feet of being a grand slam. It was pretty clear that Taillon did not have it today and when Alec Bohm singled in Rhys Hoskins to make it 4-0, Aaron Boone had had enough.
