PHILADELPHIA — With Luis Severino on the mound, the Yankees continued their winning ways, defeating the Philadelphia Phillies, 6-0, at Citizens Bank Park.
The New York ace was his usual dominant self, striking out nine in seven shutout innings. He improved to 12-2 with the win tonight.
As for the offense, the Yankees immediately took the lead with immediate damage against Jake Arrieta.
After getting last night off, Aaron Hicks opened the game with a homer to straightaway center of Arrieta, his eleventh of the season.

Just like that, the Yankees take the lead 😎
Then, after loading the bases in the third, New York continued to pour on.
Right after, Greg Bird drove in another run with a single to left field.
New York added two more runs in the game, through a Hicks sac fly in the fourth and a Didi Gregorius solo shot in the fifth.
Arrieta, who gave up six runs on nine hits, just did not have his best stuff tonight and the Yankees just took advantage.
