Game 71 | 38-33, 2nd : The New York Yankees have embarked on an epic losing streak. It’s only three games so far, but they’re not just losing. They’re getting slobberkockered. The team has given up 34 runs in the last three games, and for only the second time in over 100 years the Yanks have allowed 11 runs or more in three consecutive games. Tonight’s beatdown at the hands of the Philadelphia Phillies was ugly, no other way to put it.
Lost in the translation of this clusterfu*k was a four home run night from the New York offense. Garrett Jones, Brett Gardner, Chase Headley, Alex Rodriguez all went deep, in a game on paper you’d think would be enough against the worst team in Major League Baseball — at home, no less.
Introducing the newest member to the Yankee-Killer Club — Maikel Franco. Second 5-RBI game in a row including 3 home runs, and started Philly’s 9th inning blowout frame with a 2-run double.
Here’s the box score, full recap, and video highlights.
Phillies 11, Yankees 6
